Each year, in what has become a much-anticipated annual event, Afternoon of Praise singers and orchestra members from diverse congregations across Alabama spend months practicing before gathering with Dove Award nominee Richard Kingsmore at Talladega’s Historic Ritz Theatre (circa 1936) ( ) to produce two¬†professional Christian concerts and praise experiences to raise funds for The Red Door Kitchen ( and The Samaritan House (, two charitable organizations that provide services necessary to those in need in the Talladega community.

These organizations depend on the funds raised each year by Afternoon of Praise, so we hope you will join us at The Ritz at 2:30 pm or 4:30 pm on Sunday, August 20, 2017 to praise God, enjoy music we all love, and to support organizations that help those in need in our community. Together, we can make a real and positive difference!

Ticket cost is $20, and tickets will be available in late June from Afternoon of Praise singers and orchestra members, at First United Methodist Church of Talladega ( ) (256 362-2891), at The Greater Talladega/Lincoln Chamber of Commerce ( (256 362-9075), or at The Ritz Theatre (256 315-0000). Ticket money will go to The Red Door Kitchen and The Samaritan House.

Attendees will enjoy seeing updates and renovations to several building facades on Talladega’s Historic Courthouse Square as they enter and exit¬†The Ritz.
