The Anglican Diocese of Accra has announced a monthly choral music programme, beginning next year as a way to boost the use of Ghanaian musical chorus in the church.
The choral music programme will be held on the 1st Saturday and 1st Sunday of each month and opened to the general public.
Rev Canon Anthony Eiwuley told the media that the introduction of Ghanaian choral music in the church was being appreciated by members and provided another reason for members not to miss Sunday service.
“The Anglican Diocese of Accra is therefore taking the initiative to create this platform in 2013 and beyond, making it possible for the general public to attend performances by choral groups and gospel singers,” he said.
Rev Canon Eiwuley said various groups had been lined up for performances next year and these include, a performance by the Saint Anthony Choral Group, Becky Bonney, Accra Youth Choir, Tema Youth Choir and Superintendent Kofi Sarpong, among other artistes and groups.
He said the calendar for performances will be published and also made available to most churches in Accra.
In a related development, the Saint Anthony Choral Group launched its 2012 Christmas album.
The Anglican Church in Ghana is made up parishes and congregations, which comes together to form Diocese. There are currently 10 Anglican Dioceses in Ghana.
The Accra Diocese is made up of 65 parishes and congregations.
