Free Spirit To Hold Anniversary Concert April 14

MOUNT OLIVE – On Saturday, April 14, at 7:30 PM, the University of Mount Olive contemporary gospel group, Free Spirit, will mark its 15th anniversary in a “Celebration Concert” in the Southern Bank Auditorium at University of Mount Olive.

The concert will feature works by famous Christian artists such as Bill Gaither, Michael W. Smith, Geron Davis, and others.  Former members of the ensemble will be invited on stage for the final selection “Amazing Grace/ My Chains Are Gone.”

“Free Spirit has been sharing the Gospel through music and testimony since I began the group in the spring of 1997,” says Dr. Alan Armstrong, the founder and director of the ensemble.  “This concert will be a way for us to exalt the Lord for the “good work” that He has done among us.”

Free Spirit, with its reputation throughout North Carolina for providing a quality mix of Contemporary, Gospel, Southern Gospel, and a cappella Christian music, is a mixed vocal ensemble of students that provides Christian music for church services, revivals, and community events.
