Ebenezer Baptist Choir Performance
February 25 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
In recognition of Black History Month, the Mathews Historical Museum is pleased to host performances by the Men’s and the Women’s Chorus of our local Ebenezer Baptist Church, at the Cobbs Creek Arts Center. One of the male group’s most recent performances was before a very appreciative audience at the Christmas sing-along at Mathews’ Central United Methodist Church. The men’s group has been in existence for 27 years. Mr. Herbert Carter is president of the men’s group, which is comprised of 11 men ranging in age from 25 to 90. They are well known throughout the area. Mr. Carter is also known by many as one of the original members of the Dynatones, an R & B group that was very popular in the area during the 1950’s and 60’s. The group’s focus is solely gospel music, and they accept invitations to perform at local events, as time allows. Members of the group include Herbert Carter, Sr. Kenneth Reed, Kendrick Reed, Terry Reed, Terry Hearn, Morris Thompson, Stanley Dixon, Edwin Billups, Louis Brown,Rickie Burrel and the Rev. Eric Robinson. The women’s chorus has been an integral part of the church’s choral activities. Marilyn Burrel serves as president. Pastor Robinson will introduce the groups, share their histories and speak to his experience as Pastor at Ebenezer church for the past 30 years. There is no charge for this event and reservations are not required.
