Central Lutheran hymn festival will be Nov. 16

Central Lutheran Church is having its second annual Hymn Festival Nov. 16 with brass, pipe organ, strings, percussion and choirs.

The festival honors the love of hymn singing by the late Janice Newell, a long-time music teacher, church musician and organists who died in 2012. Newel strove to make hymn singing meaningful, joyful and an important part of worship, according to a church news release.

The festival will include congregational singing with varied organ, brass, percussion, string and hand bell accompaniments. The Festival Choir, which includes members from Advent, Beautiful Savior, Central, Salem, St. Luke and St. Mark Lutheran churches, will perform.

The 2 p.m. festival is at 512 S. Bernard. For more information, call (509) 624-9233.
