The chamber-pop group, Annie Moses Band, will be performing in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church of Thomson on Monday, Nov. 27, at 7:30 p.m.
The performance is free and open to the public. A love offering will be taken at the conclusion of the concert.
The group will perform selections from their new CD, Bethlehem: House of Bread. The CD is already receiving critical acclaim from major Christian publications such as CCM Magazine, Charisma Magazine, and Christian Retailing.
"This will be the third time that the Annie Moses Band has performed for us," said FBC Pastor Jim Ramsey. "Each time the audience has grown. Once you hear and see this group perform, you just have to tell others how wonderful the experience is. I don't know that I've ever seen this much talent and performance energy in one family."
The group is comprised of the Wolaver family - parents Bill and Robin and their six children. The band is fronted by vocalist and Juilliard trained violinist, Annie Wolaver, who began her classical training at the age of four. Two of her brothers, Alex and Benjamin, are also Julliard trained musicians.
The group's Chamber-Pop sound is unique. It blends the musical elements of everything from classical music to blues, from jazz and bluegrass to pop. It's a sound that has begun to connect with audiences. While the band's sound can vary from song to song, its message is always the same.
"We started the band out of a desire to honor God," said Annie, the namesake of her grand-grandmother, Annie Moses. "We want our music to praise Him...and to make His praise glorious. Our greatest compliment, and the one we hear the most, is that our music is refreshing and that's something you don't hear every day."
Annie Moses Band recently performed at a Focus on the Family Chapel service for the entire staff. Their television appearances have included performances on 100 Hunley Street, TBN, Gaither Homecoming, and Daystar TV. They were also the special music guests for the joint celebration of the 30-year anniversary of Prison Fellowship ministry and the 75th birthday of its founder, Chuck Colson.
