Here's what's going on in town this weekend

Good day and happy Halloween weekend.

This weekend, Lansing welcomes some young guests from the west side of the state — and one guest from across the Atlantic. Members of the Grand Rapids Choir of Men and Boys, led by Dr. Martin Neary of the United Kingdom, come to Lansing’s St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Sunday. Dr. Neary is an organist and choral director who formerly served as organist and master of the choristers at London’s Westminster Abbey. The choir comprises men and boys from West Michigan who perform traditional hymns, carols and other spiritual songs. The group, formed in 1989, began its relationship with Dr. Neary in 2009, when he came to the U.S. to direct the choir for a church service. He has returned to work with the singers several times since. 4 p.m. FREE. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 218 W. Ottawa St., Lansing. (517) 482-9454, grcmb.org.
