University Baptist Church is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its minister of music at 6 p.m. Sunday with an instrumental concert.

The concert and reception at the church’s Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall will honor the Rev. Warren Miller.

UBC was established Feb. 24, 1952, while meeting in a renovated Army barracks on Chimes Street on the north side of LSU’s campus, a news release said.

The membership soon purchased 6 acres on Highland Road at Leeward Drive, which now serves as the church campus.

The first buildings were dedicated in May 1960. UBC has a long-standing ministry for faculty, staff and students at LSU, the release said.

Louisiana Sinfonietta chamber music concert starts at 2 p.m. Sunday at the LSU School of Music Recital Hall.

Music by Beethoven, Mozart, Corelli, Sibelius, Dieta and Constantinides. Soloists will include Lana Carver, voice; Michael and Jamie Gurt, duo pianos; and Espen Lilleslatten, viola.

Tickets at door are $15 adults, $5 children.
