Appointed Quartet is celebrating its fifth anniversary with two nights of performances at The Colonnade Center Friday March 17 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, March 18 at 6 p.m.

"We're a traditional Southern gospel quartet, doing some old-style, traditional and some progressive," said Appointed member and manager Stephen Roberts, when asked to describe the group's sound.

Other local Christian artists joining Appointed Quartet for Friday's lineup are 2x2 Quartet, a Southern gospel group from Cleveland, Tenn.; 21-year-old Jessie Conner, a Southern gospel soloist from Cleveland; Tenn., and Ordained Ministries, composed of singer-songwriters and evangelists Greg and Catrina Headrick, from Flintstone.

"They're a family group with a wonderful family harmony," Roberts said of Ordained.

On Saturday, performing along with Appointed Quartet are the Hullender Family, a well-known family in Catoosa County that includes county Probate Judge Jeff Hullender; and headliner Gold City, a Southern gospel quartet based in Gadsden, Ala.

Reserved seats for either show range from $15-$17, or $10 for students of any age. To purchase or for more information, call 706-935-9000.
