… Marks anniversary in remembrance of departed members
By Alfred Adams
IT was indeed a delight to watch, when members of the St. John Methodist Church Choir, Apowa Society, showcased their musical talents to mark their 48th Anniversary at a colourful ceremony.
The anniversary, which was on the theme, ‘My role as a chorister in the Singing Ministry,’ saw prominent personalities grace the ceremony.
The ceremony was as well used to outdoor a portrait of departed choristers who had contributed to the growth of the choir in their days as choristers. Currently, the portrait of the departed choristers is embossed at the Choir Vestry.
What is more, nine choristers were unanimously elected into various offices to steer the affairs of the choir.
They are Master Francis Ernest Aidoo, Choirmaster, Samuel Ekow Nyankson, Assistant Choirmaster/Organist, Madam Juliana Daniels, Presenter, and Master Alfred Adams, Secretary.
Others are Nora Arthur, Assistant Secretary, Catherine Nketsiah, Financial Secretary, Agnes Abban Curator, Hannah Yankey, Treasurer, and Elizabeth Andoh, Assistant Curator.
The rest are Madam Emma Yartey, Soprano Leader, Joana Arthur, Alto Leader, Eric Boadi, Tenor Leader and Samuel Adoko Jnr., Bass Leader.
Two members of the choir, in the persons of Mr. Otupiri Darko-Akoto and Madam Agnes Abban, were honoured for their meritorious service to the choir. The anniversary also coincided with the choir unveiling its ceremonial cloth.
The Chairman of the occasion, Osabarima Kwaw Entsie, Paramount Chief of the Mpohor Traditional area, underscored the importance of music in the life of the Christian.
He therefore, implored the choir to use music to win souls into the Christ Ministry.
The Superintendant Minister in Charge of the Society, Rev. Godfrey Quaye, preached the sermon, and consecrated the executives into office.
