The Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir has two important performances in April — the morning gospel on Sunday April 8 at the Redwood Coast Music Festival and the Vigil for Josiah on April 15.

Redwood Coast Music Festival (RCMF)

The Redwood Coast Music Festival is a four-day event, April 5-8, with seven performance venues in Eureka!  Over 30 bands will play more than 100 sets of music.  

A wide array of musical genres will be performed, including Hot Jazz, Swing, Blues, Zydeco, Rockabilly, Country and Gospel.  Each performance venue has a dance floor. See the website for more information.  

The AIGC and the AIGC Youth Choir will perform a FREE concert at 10:30am at the Adorni Center (1011 Waterfront Dr, Eureka).  The concert is sponsored by the RCMF.

Vigil for Josiah

The Vigil for Josiah is a remembrance service for Josiah Lawson who was stabbed to death on April 15, 2017.  The homicide case is still unsolved.

The AIGC will be performing at 5pm at the D Street Neighborhood Center (1301 D St, Arcata). A gathering will be held on the Arcata Plaza (between 8th & 9th and G & H St) before the Vigil for Josiah.  

Food will be served and Charmaine Lawson, Josiah’s mother, will speak at the Vigil for Josiah.
