The Baylor Religious Hour Choir (BRH) will present a special concert for the Waco community at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15, at the First Baptist Church of Waco.

The performance of the 45-member choir is in honor of the church's 150th anniversary celebration.

BRH was created in 1948 by Baylor student Dick Baker to provide additional inspiration during the weekly Baylor Religious Hour service. Today, under the direction of Rebecca Kennedy, the historic choir has traveled and performed across the continental United States, Canada, Denmark, Hawaii, Mexico, Sweden, Spain and Taiwan. The group also regularly ministers through mission work, including Backyard Bible Clubs, drama, inner city ministry, puppet ministry, renovation, revivals, survey work, visitation and youth rallies.

Former members of the choir include Billy Ray Hearn, founder of Sparrow Records and chairman of EMI Christian Music Group, contemporary artists Phil Driscoll and Paul Smith and arranger and composer Kurt Kaiser.

The concert is free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Kennedy at 710-3215.
