Irish music featured at Port church

Celtic group The Crossing will perform next Thursday, Oct. 3, at Old South Church in Newburyport.

Hosted by nonprofit ministry FirstLoveWorks, the concert will feature original songs that carry on the Celtic tradition of storytelling.

The Crossing is a Chicago-based band that has been entertaining since 1984. While spiritual themes are woven throughout its sets, the overall mood is one of hope, joy and celebration that appeals to people of all convictions.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the concert will begin at 7. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted.

The church is located at 29 Federal St. For more information, visit www.firstloveworks.org or call 978-463-0923.

Celebrate the flavors of fall in an “Autumn Harvest in New England” cooking class Wednesday night at Kitchen Local in Amesbury.

From 6 to 9 p.m., chef Carolyn Grieco will lead participants through classic cooking techniques and unique seasonal recipes for a special harvest dinner.

The class costs $60, and registration is required. Visit www.carolynsfarmkitchen.com or call 978-994-1692.

From Haiti to Newburyport

Les Petits Chanteurs, a 30-voice Haitian boy choir, will return to St. Paul’s Church for a performance tonight at 7.

The boys, from the Holy Trinity Music School in Port-au-Prince, will be joined by the Holy Trinity Philharmonic Orchestra. While in town, they are staying with families in the greater Newburyport area.

A free-will offering will be collected to aid with tour expenses and to support the rebuilding of the music school and Holy Trinity Cathedral, which were both destroyed in the 2010 Haitian earthquake.

St. Paul’s is located at 166 High St., Newburyport. For more information, call 978-465-5351.
