Lamb of God performance preparations underway


A local production is getting ready for upcoming Easter concerts.

150 musicians from the Midwest will perform Lamb of God, a musical presentation of Jesus Christ's final days and resurrection.
The group rehearsed Tuesday evening at St. Andrews church in Rib Mountain.
Organizers say it brings people of all faiths together.

"Seeing all these people come together and kind of putting aside all the differences we might have in our different walks of life and celebrating what we have in common," said show organizer Coy Johnston. "That's kind of the message of it and it just fills your soul with joy and happiness."

Lamb of God was written by American composer Rob Gardner; Johnston said he went to school with Gardner a number of years ago.
It will be performed March 18 and 19 at the Grand Theater in Wausau. It was performed their last year as well.
Admission is free.
