The Wittenberg Singers and Chamber Singers will perform themed sets at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 11, at High Street United Methodist Church, 230 E. High St.
Admission is free, and an offering to support the series will be taken.
The all-female Wittenberg Singers includes 30 voices and their first set will be of nature themes including Randall Thompson’s “A Girl’s Garden” and “Honor the Earth” by Sarah Hopkins.
The second set will feature angel themes such as “Lift Thine Eyes” by Mendelssohn, “Until Even the Angels” by Craig Hella Johnson and “Bright Morning Stars” by Shawn Kirchner.
A set of folk songs and spirituals will round out this set.
