Our 2023-24 Concert series season began on October 8 with an exciting concert featuring Grammy award nominee, marimba player Greg Giannascoli accompanied by Schuylkill County native, Ron Stabinsky. Next on the schedule is the Beethoven Trio Project featuring well-known Schuylkill County musician Simon Maurer, violin, joined by Xun Pan, piano and Ai-Lin Hsieh, cello. Please see the enclosed flyer for this concert on November 19 at 4 pm. Reception goodies will be needed and a sign-up sheet will be in the binders behind the organ, at the back of the church and on the bulletin board at the base of the 2nd St. stairs. Thank you in advance.
As we look forward to the coming of the Christ Child, the procession to the crèche will once again be a part of the 6 pm Festal Eucharist for Christmas Eve. December 24 will be a very busy day since the Advent IV service will be in the morning. Volunteers will be needed to help take us from Advent to Christmas decorations after the 9 am service.
Once again, Teagan and Elliott Wehr will offer their gifts with piano solos during the Christmas Eve service and Lea Bortner will be rehearsing with the chime players for the beginning of the service. How blessed are we with this musical talent in our parish.
Looking ahead, please put Sunday, February 18, 2024 on your calendars. This will be the dedication concert for the newly refurbished Austin console, Op. 1040. F. Allen Artz, III will present a concert based on “God So Loved the World”— a journey from Lent through Pentecost. The concert will be at 2 pm (please note the time) and $10 is a suggested donation. All donations will go to the organ fund.
