The first of three summer “Sundays at 4” concerts will be held on Sunday, June 26, 4 pm at Christ Episcopal Church (15th & H streets), Eureka.  Sponsored by the Christ Church Concert Series, the concerts are free and open to the public.

The concert also continues the series of Spring concerts offered by the McKinleyville Community Choir.  This energetic choral group will perform a capella as well as accompanied by keyboard, percussion, and brass.  There will be vocal solos, a duet, and a smaller ensemble offering.  The musical selections are varied–familiar and some not so–and range from Classic Rock, Swing to Reggae, Classical to Spiritual.

Under the direction of Robert Keiber, the members of the choir come from Arcata, Blue Lake, Eureka, McKinleyville, and Trinidad, assembling weekly to prepare for and share in the joy of making music together.

Off-street parking is available at the corner of 14th and G Streets.  Handicapped accessible entrance is on 15th Street, between G and H Streets.
