St. Andrew United Methodist Church invites the community for a beautiful evening of music performed by the world-renowned British Vocal Ensemble VOCES8 on Sunday, October 30, at 6 p.m., in the sanctuary at 5801 W. Plano Parkway. There is no admission fee.
Touring globally, VOCES8 performs an extensive repertory – from Renaissance to Nat King Cole – both in its a cappella concerts and in collaborations with leading musicians, orchestras, composers, and soloists around the world. The group has performed at many notable venues since its inception in 2005 including Wigmore Hall, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Cité de la Musique Paris, Vienna Konzerthaus, Tokyo Opera City, NCPA Beijing, Sydney Opera House, Mariinsky Theatre Concert Hall, Victoria Concert Hall Singapore, Palacio de Bellas Artes Mexico City among many others. This season they are performing over 100 concerts in the UK and across Europe, in Israel and the United States.
“It is always a privilege to welcome our friends from VOCES8 to St. Andrew,” said Taylor Davis, creative director of traditional music and worship. “Their stunning performances are an inspiration, providing impeccable harmony that sets the tone for an engaging and beautiful evening. To see this talented group perform live is an opportunity that should not be missed. We hope you can join us!”

St. Andrew United Methodist Church began in 1986 in the spirit of its namesake, a disciple of Jesus. The life of the Apostle Andrew embodies the church's mission, which is to invite the Christian-ish and the unchurched to become passionate servants of Christ. The congregation of St. Andrew follows Jesus, lives in relationship, serves others, and takes risks in faith. Worship includes four services each weekend on a 21.2-acre campus at the corner of Plano Parkway and Mira Vista in Plano, Texas, where more than 2,000 people gather each weekend. Recent renovation allows the Sanctuary to host worship in both Traditional style, with the classic pipe organ, and Contemporary style, with a new LED center screen and lighting technology. Small groups and Bible studies gather on campus and throughout the region every day of the week. Mission opportunities serve our local area, neighboring regions, and global communities. The church has been repeatedly selected as a "Best Place to Worship in Plano” by the readers of the Plano Star Courier. St. Andrew United Methodist Church is located at 5801 W. Plano Parkway, Plano, Texas 75093. Visit www.standrewumc.org; call 972-380-8001.
