Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary will present its third annual concert of sacred music at the Bass Performance Hall in downtown Fort Worth Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. The concert is a celebration of the ancient and modern hymns and spiritual songs of the Christian faith.

Last year, more than 1,200 people attended the second annual gala concert at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas. Ticket sales for this year’s events have already surpassed 1,600. The concert in Fort Worth will feature the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, the nationally recognized Southwestern Oratorio Chorus, and harpist Greg Buchanan. The symphony and Oratorio Chorus will present the works of Bach, Mendelssohn and Saint-Saens with orchestra.

Gregory Tomlin, director of public relations at Southwestern Seminary, said the event is the newest “must see” event at the Bass Performance Hall. “The event promises to be a worshipful experience, but also one where the musicians display in fine form the musical talents that God has given to them,” Tomlin said.
