East End Arts began its 29th annual Harvest Gospel Concert Series at Mattituck Presbyterian Church Thursday night.

A choir of over 70, some of whom have been with the group for nearly 30 years, sang to a packed house despite the rainy weather. Led by artistic director Maryanne McElroy, the free concert featured several guest soloists and a special presentation by the children of Friendship Baptist Church of Flanders.

The nondenominational celebration of music continues on Friday, Nov. 20, at Hamptons United Methodist Church in Southampton and Saturday, Nov. 21, at Friendship Baptist Church in Flanders.
