The Lesters, a southern Gospel music group, will perform at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 22, at the Utica International Seventh Day Adventist Church, at 1134 Herkimer Rd.
The Lesters, from St. Louis, Mo., have their musical roots dating back to the 1920s. The Lester family has produced over 90 recordings and has been in non-stop full time ministry. The third and fourth generations carry on the legacy with Brian Lester singing baritone, his son Jonathan singing lead and Justin Wells as tenor.
Lester has received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Southern Gospel Music Association for his commitment to sharing the Gospel with class and consistency for many years. The group has appeared on The Gaither Homecomings and has traveled the world sharing their music.
Parking will be available at the church and also at the church parking lot across the street. A love offering will be taken and CDs and other ministry items will be available after the program. For more information, contact Randy Davis at 429-9399.
