"The club is a great place to feel like you belong, to get plugged in," Powers said.
They stressed that the whole community is welcome to share in that feeling at the chorale concert, which is set for 6 p.m. Powers said the program will feature a mix of ancient and classic Christmas carols, and people who attend "can expect chills."
"They are really superb," she said of the choir, which is directed by Grammy-nominated Alexander Blachly.
"This is one of those examples where people complain there's no culture in Albany," Powers added. "This is a great opportunity to broaden your horizons. It's just beautiful."
Admission is free. A goodwill offering will be collected. The church is at 23 Crumitie Road.
