Remembered In Love

“For as long as we live, they too will live, for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.”

A Scenic City Chorus ensemble and two quartets, Kinetic Energy and Treble in River City, recently were honored to perform a selection of hymns, spirituals, patriotic and inspirational music at the annual Memorial Concert held at the Fairfield Glade Community Church in Crossville, TN.

This special annual concert honors members of the congregation who died in the last year and includes a moving Rose Ceremony as part of the service. Veterans—both living and gone—were also recognized for their sacrifices to duty and country.

The concert hit home for Scenic City chorus members as well as those in attendance who grieved as they celebrated remembrance. It was a time to reflect on what’s really important in life and the healing love and fellowship brings. 

As one of our members, Kathy Yonka, said “It made me think of my own mother and how we all need to make the most out of every moment—everyday.”
