TELL CITY – Continuing a tradition already several years old, First Christian Church in Troy will offer a gospel concert, "A Gospel Thanksgiving in Song," from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Tell City High School.
Doors to the auditorium will open at 1:30. The concert is offered by the church at no cost, though a freewill offering will be collected.
Performing will be the Woodsmen Quartet of Batesville, the Conquerors Quartet from Evansville and the southern Indiana-based SonShiners. Also on stage will be guest pianist-soloist Benjamin Morelock.
Based in Evansville, the Southern gospel group has been entertaining audiences with its traditional style and sound since 1990. Over the years, a recognizable group of supportive followers have emerged to rally for the Conquerors.
Members of the group are Roger Sweeney, David Goldman, Andrew Goldman, Mason Westerfield and Joyce Meyer.
The Conquerors' main mission is to bring praise and glory to their Lord by reaching out to others with a message in song that is uplifting, inspiring and life-changing.
They welcome opportunities to share their ministry with people from different faiths and backgrounds in various places, reaching both the churched and the unchurched. However, the church has been the Conquerors' primary focus.
Over the years, The Conquerors Quartet has graced the stage in concert halls and auditoriums with a number of full-time groups and well-known soloists of the industry, including Heaven Bound, Jeff and Sheri Easter, The New Hinsons, The Crabb Family, Gold City, The Kingsmen, Southern Sound, Ernie Haase and The Signature Sound Quartet, The Mystery Men Quartet, Eternal Vision, The Crossmen, Allison Speer and Garry Sheppard.
The Sonshiners Quartet is based in southern Indiana but has traveled to Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Oklahoma, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas. They sing and worship in more than 150 services each year, including services at many county fairs and festivals.
The Woodsmen Quartet has been traveling and singing just over three years. They have shared the platform with the best in gospel music, such as The Gold City, The Kingsmen, Signature Sound, Dixie Melody Boys, and Dove Brothers.
