New Music Review: “Let The Song Arise”

Written by Terry DeBoer on . Posted in Local

Hark Up cover art 2019The variety of talented musicians that make up the faith-based arts organization Hark Up have combined to produce a new album of praise and worship music titled, "Let The Song Arise."

The Hark Up Horns and the Hark Up Choir (featuring outstanding soloists Angie Royce, Colin Tobin, Breighanna Minnema and others) place their spin on both modern day and classic musical expressions of faith.

"A New Hallelujah," a Michael W. Smith anthem, includes vocals from both Tobin and Hark Up executive director Chris Hansen. The assembled artists also cover the David Crowder tune, "All My Hope."

Baby Boomers: Remember the haunting beat of "Spirit of the Sky," that late 60s-early '70s, psychedelic-sounding mantra? It also gets the Hark Up treatment.

And there's the time-honored hymn standard, "How Great Thou Art."

The collection was recorded earlier this year at Third Coast Studios in Grand Haven with lead sound engineer Joe Hettinga.

Several of the new songs will be performed at the Hark Up annual spring concert at 3pm Sun. May 5 at DeVos Center for Arts and Worship, 2300 Plymouth Rd. SE (at G.R. Christian High School). Physical copies of the new release should be available at the concert, which celebrates Hark Up's 20th year in the community.
