For the second consecutive year, St. John’s U.C.C., 139 N. Fourth Street in Emmaus, is hosting a series of six Sanctuary Serenades.

These free concerts are held on Friday nights throughout the year.

The first of the new season was held Feb. 8; students of all ages from Star of the Day Voice Studio performed in a winter recital.

The remaining five Sanctuary Serenades by Star of the Day Productions will highlight the talents of various local performers. Featured musicians will include singer/songwriter Ben Tyler, vocalist Mel Nichols and Emmaus High School student Rachel Knappenberger. In December, a living Nativity is planned.

Kirsten Almeida, founder/president of Star of the Day, said the upcoming Sanctuary Serenades incorporate “… all genres of music from classical to Broadway and everything in between.” For more information, contact the church office by calling 610-965-9158.
