| January 29, 2018

COSHOCTON – In observance of Black History month, the Roscoe UMC will hold a special service/presentation on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 3 p.m. in the sanctuary. Soprano Jessica Crowell, Malone University 2016 graduate, and MU senior mezzo-soprano, Desirée Meschell Hargrave, will share a 20 minute opera (Beneath Suspicion) written by MU music prof., Dr. Jesse Ayers. MU graduate pianist, Jessica Kapraly, and violinist, Joe Lautzenheiser, will accompany the singers.

Beneath Suspicion” is based on a true, little-known story of two daring, American women who played on prevailing gender and racial stereotypes to fight slavery by spying for the Union during the Civil War. The church is located at 475 High St. (near Historic Roscoe Village). For more information, call the church at 740-622-7780.
