Easter Sunrise Service set for Centenary College campus


SHREVEPORT, LA — Centenary College will host an Easter Sunrise Service on Sunday, April 16 at 6:00 a.m. in the Hargrove Memorial Amphitheater (the Shell). The service is open to the public, and all interested singers are invited to join the Centenary College Choir to form the choir for the service.

“The service is similar to a cantata, balancing liturgy, drama, and music in presenting the passion and resurrection of Jesus Christ,” says Dr. David Hobson, director of the Centenary College Choir. “It is a wonderful set of anthems, including many familiar choruses of Brahms, Handel, and Dubois, as well as a few well-known hymns.”

Rehearsals for all singers will be held on Tuesday, April 4 and Tuesday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m. in Centenary’s Anderson Choral Building. A dress rehearsal will be held in the Shell on Saturday, April 15 from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. Interested singers should contact the Choir at choir@centenary.edu or 318.429.6887 for more details about participating.
