Concert at Crossroads Theater

by Benjamin Berman and Janet Waanders

We hope so much that YOU will come to New Brunswick for a summer night out at Crossroads Theater on Livingston Ave.

The Date and Time? July 16th at 7:00 p.m.

What are we celebrating? Over the years, First Reformed Church has developed close ties with several groups that represent different parts of Christianity, different parts of the world, and different faiths. We have benefited greatly from these associations and want to celebrate that with music.

Who will perform? Come to hear Jeanel LeBlanc sing African-American Spirituals, the band Wind of Anatolia play and sing Turkish spiritual music, and the Raices Cultural Center Ensemble perform music from Afro-Cuban Spiritual Masses.

What does the concert cost? Ticket prices are $20 for premium seats, $12.50 for general admission, and $5 for children 12 and under. Call (732) 545-1005 to purchase tickets, or visit www.firstreformedchurch.net to purchase them online. You may also purchase tickets the evening of the concert; but don’t wait, because premium seats will go quickly.

What does the concert benefit? The historic preservation project at First Reformed Church is striving to raise $487,000 to match our grant from the NJ State Historic Trust to restore the exteriors of our historic buildings, all on the National Historic Register.

The next step is replacement of the huge slate roof on the sanctuary. Imagine that your ticket will purchase some slates for that project! See you on the 16th.

Crossroads Theater was made available through the generosity of Johnson & Johnson, Inc., Middlesex County
Cultural and Heritage Commission/Board of Chosen Freeholders and the New Brunswick Cultural Center.
