Chiz Rider, one of America's foremost professional trumpeters, touring and recording artists, will be appearing in concert at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 17, at Christ Evangelical Free Church, Route 443 West, near Normal Square, Lehighton.

Earlier this year Chiz released his ninth album entitled, "Live Worship," which features live concert performances of traditional hymns, patriotic, and contemporary praise songs. Chiz performs over 250 concerts annually throughout North America as well as several international tours.

In the past he has performed with such popular Christian artists as Carman, DC Talk, Newsboys, Skillet, Larnell Harris, and Michael W. Smith. He has performed at a Billy Graham Crusade and numerous times at the Crystal Cathedral.

For his live shows Chiz incorporates a high impact light show along with large screen video enhancement. While entertaining and professionally done, its focus and goal is to glorify Christ, present the gospel, and encourage believers.
