Holiday Concert - Dec. 9
You won't want to miss the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir and the AIGC Youth Choir performing their annual Holiday Concert, 7 p.m., Saturday, December 9, at the Arcata Presbyterian Church, 11th and G Streets.
The Holiday Concert will feature a spirit-lifting selection of holiday gospel music. In honor of our Latino brothers and sisters, AIGC will sing Las Posadas in Spanish. Las Posadas is a traditional Mexican Christmas song cycle which tells the story of Mary and Joseph searching for lodging.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. Buy your tickets online and save! Tickets are also available at Wildberries Marketplace (747 13th St, Arcata) and The Works (434 2nd St, Eureka). Children 5 and under enter for free.
The Holiday Concert will be the first concert performed in the Arcata Presbyterian Church since being restored after the devastating arson-set fire of September 16, 2017.
Funds for the Humboldt State University, Latinx graduation will be requested at the event. Latino students will make up more than half of the HSU graduating class of 2018.
Harvest Concert - Friday, Nov. 3
The spirit-filled Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir will be performing their Harvest Concert at 7pm on Friday, November 3, 2017, at the Arcata United Methodist Church (1761 11th St.). The concert also features the fantastic singer Clarie Bent and the AIGC Youth Choir. Refreshments will be served.
Monetary donations will be accepted at the concert for The Legacy campaign to help feed the needy.

The usual venue for AIGC Harvest Concert, the Arcata Presbyterian Church, was partially burned by an arsonist on September 16, 2017 and is not available for the concert.
For 25 years, the Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir has sung out its message of faith, hope, love and joy. The 60-voice choir serves the North Coast region by singing at community events, fundraising benefits, memorials, churches, and for inmates at the Humboldt County jail.
Successful Prayer Breakfast
The annual, spirit-filled Prayer Breakfast was held on Mother's Day, May 14, 2017, at the Arcata Community Center. The Arcata Interfaith Gospel Choir performed with the AIGC Youth Choir and the 16-voice guest artists A Company of Voices.
The AIGC wishes to apologize to any Prayer Breakfast attendees who were offended by comments made by a community member at the event. Although this individual was not a planned speaker, and the speech was not sanctioned by the AIGC, we acknowledge the pain that our friends of color experience and we hope to promote healing and unity through our singing and community engagement.
The AIGC thanks over 100 donors from our community for making our annual Prayer Breakfast on May 14, 2017 so successful. We appreciate all who attended the Prayer Breakfast.
