Members of the Emmaus Moravian Church Brass Choir perform hymns during the ceremony. The ensemble was originally founded in 1820. Members of the Moravian congregation are among the first European settlers of what would become the Borough of Emmaus. “Churches are still central” in the Emmaus community, Rev. David K. Schlonecker said.
