The St. John's Episcopal Church Summer Concert Series presents the Trinity Cathedral Choir on Sunday evening, Sept. 4, for the third and final concert of this summer's series.
The Cathedral Singers, the principal choir from Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Columbia, S.C., is an elite choir of 12 professional voices singing a cappella, which continues a 200-year tradition at the cathedral.

Recent tours include performances at the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.; St. Thomas Church in New York; and Canterbury, St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, and York Minster in England. This group is slated to tour Italy in 2012 and will perform at High Mass at the Vatican.
The concert begins at 5 p.m. at St. John the Baptist of the Lower Watauga Episcopal Church in Valle Crucis. Admission is $10 for adults. Children under 12 are admitted free.
