Last year scripture was added to the music, but D’Agostino wanted share the events of that first Good Friday solely through song, she said.
About 100 people came out for last year's Good Friday concert, she said. By contrast, the 2017
Christmas cantata attracted about twice as many attendees, she said.
And while some people enjoy expressing their appreciation for music by applauding, D’Agostino said the audience will be asked not to do so.
"At the end, everyone will leave in silence," D’Agostino said.
Participants in the Good Friday choral concert are sopranos Deb Gowdy, Barbara Green, Fionna Hook, Sophia Jakubowski, Kayla Lockhart, Eva Miller, Sarah Moore, Kaitlyn Thayer, Sharon Watson; altos Carol Crawford, Kaylee Groves, Patti Holmberg, Brittney Kaluzny, McKenna Roach, Erin Shumaker, Cathy Smith, Helen Talty; tenors Bud Bruno Darrell D'Agostino Chris Kent Mike Kostbade Kerry Sharp Charlie Stewart Gavyn Williams; and bassists Ken Miller, James Reinbacher, Steve Smith, Kyle Wynn, John Zobel
