Music continues to play a part in our Zoom services. When Father Kurt celebrates with us, Cora is able to play the organ from the sanctuary which wafts into the Chapel for Prelude, Offertory and Postlude. When Mother Dolores is graciously serving us from her home, Cora plays the piano. More Wi-Fi capability has been brought into the sanctuary and when Zoom services are held there, the presence of the organ will be more palpable for worship. We are returning to in person worship on September 20. Hopefully by Christmas, we will be singing the Glory of God in seasonal anthems and hymns.
Because of the uncertainty of larger groups gathering as we enter the fall season, a preemptive and proactive strike has changed our concert series to 3 events in the spring of 2021. Our artists have been very cooperative and all agreed that changing dates was preferable to cancelling their engagements. So, we are so pleased to announce that on March 14, 2021 Samantha Wood, Ruben Balboa III and John Kline IV will present their unique program for voice, viola and piano. The highly anticipated return of the Mendelssohn Piano Trio will happen on its originally scheduled date of March 28 and Organist Cody W. Mead will present his keyboard gifts on Sunday, April 18. The concerts will be fairly close together, but the dates do not conflict with other series in our community and it is a blessing to be able to have them at all. Thank you for your support and we look forward to be able to present a full season despite the virus. And if we are really fortunate, perhaps the parking garage will be completed by the spring of 2021!
