Reverend Dave Pollard said his congregation was excited to welcome the group.
“Other concerts at the church have always been well received,” Pollard said.
“It seemed like a good fit.”
The members of the choir are youth aged 14 to 18 years old.
The group is travelling to Airdrie from Idaho, their home church being the First United Methodist Church in Boise.
Along with contemporary and traditional choir music, the group will also perform English Handbell pieces.
Handbell choirs utilize bells to ring recognizable music harmonies.
Pollard said guests would be delighted to hear the handbell pieces.
“They’re a unique instrument,” he said.
“They’re quite neat to hear … they’re quite beautiful.”
The concert is free and Pollard said visitors should visit the church on Monday night and enjoy relaxing music.
“After a busy weekend and after the first day of work, come listen to some young people sing,” he said.
