“Singing Glory Be to Jesus” is this year’s fundraiser theme for the Transfiguration Catholic Church’s Annual Christmas Concert set for Sunday, December 18, at 7 p.m., in the edifice located at 2515 West Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd in Los Angeles.

Choir Director Oscar Pratt described this year’s event as an inspiration for Christians.

“Through our music,” he said, “We want to please people with our renditions. It is to bring the joy and peace of Christmas to ourselves and all whom we touch. We are doing our part to make the world more loveable. This is the message our choir members will send this year through their heartfelt performance.”


Transfiguration’s Choir has performed successfully for many years, and this year promises to continue the tradition with songs that are memorable Christmas favorites as well as original presentations that fit the season’s celebration.

The Children’s Choir, noted for its outstanding talent, will blend in with its version of gayety as its members eagerly sing and move to the rhythm of melodic songs including “The Little Drummer Boy.”

Regarding the concert, Deacon Mark Anthony Race, church administrator, said, “This is a time when the Choir and musicians come together and give us the full range of their capabilities. If you close your eyes, you can hear the angels praising God and singing ‘Glory to God in the Highest and Peace on Earth.’

“Our Choir always exemplifies joy of the gospel and at the same time, it blends in with our sermon which emphatically arouses the religious sentiment that moves our parishioners to heartfelt emotions. It is a vital part of our service.”

“Following intermission, Santa Claus will take his traditional strut down the aisle while the orchestra swings him in grand style and he will distribute candy treats to the audience. In addition, attendees are invited to enjoy tasty refreshments in the church hall after the program,” said a parishioner.

For information, call the church office at (323) 291-1136.
