The Hymn Sing To Be Held on October 10

By Joyce Spamer

Southern Gospel NY is excited to announce that it is bringing back to the Rochester Area for the 2nd time the Hymn Sing.

Last year we held our 1st Hymn Sing and at the end of the evening people were asking if we could make this an annual event for Rochester and YES these are our plans.

This year the Hymn Sing will be held on Saturday, October 10, 2020, at 3:00 PM and it will take place again at Spencerport Bible Church, 1948 N. Union Street Spencerport, NY 14559.

Make sure that you mark your calendar NOW as you will not want to miss this!

The Hymn Sing will be hosted by Richard Hyssong of The Hyssong Family and Mike Moran of The Torchmen.

There is nothing like a church full of Christians singing some of the old time Hymns.

Unfortunately, the Hymns are not sung as much in churches today, but as a kid I can remember sitting in church and singing songs like Amazing Grace, The Old Rugged Cross and many more.

If you have never attended one of our concerts, let me tell you a bit about the hosts.

Richard Hyssong and his family are from Rockport, Maine and have been to the Rochester area a few times. Their #1 songs on the charts are: Choose Life, Run The Race, I Tell Them Jesus, and Let The Hallelujahs Ring among others over the years. Along with Richard, there is his dad - Del Hyssong, mom - Susan Hyssong, and sometimes Richard's wife will join them. Not only do they sing but Richard and Del play the Trumpet and the Trombone - and one of my favorite songs they play is "The King is Coming."

Another host will be Mike Moran from Canada's #1 Quartet - The Torchmen. The Torchmen

have spent a lot of time in Rochester and many people consider them their favorite group. They were chosen as Southern Gospel NY's Artist of the Year for 2018. The Torchmen have just celebrated their 50th Anniversary for singing Gospel Music and we know that you will enjoy them.
