Music @ CUMC

Dozens of people — residents and non — walked and drove to Community United Methodist Church (corner of Chestnut St & E. Grant Ave) for some beautiful music.

Jeff Manno, CUMC’s organist/pianist and instrumental music teacher for Roselle Park’s elementary schools, was joined by his wife Cindy Manno.  Cindy, a professionally-trained vocalist, displayed her voice beautifully during their concert.  All the music for the evening was composed of classic hymns and some lesser-known creations.  The common “thread” among all the pieces was their arranger, Mark Hayes, from Kansas City, Missouri.  Mark Hayes is one of Mr. Manno’s favorite arrangers.

Music@CUMC is a (mostly) monthly series of concerts, aside from summer, planned by the church’s Music Director, Mike Sanflippo, and assisted by many parishioners and volunteers.  The concerts are free.  A “free-will” offering is taken at the door entrance with the monies going to CUMC’s music program.  You are invited to visit the church’s website for more information.
