* Nursery care is available in the nursery suites on the lower level of All Saints’ Hall.
This newly founded program is directed by Rob Ridgell and includes two ensembles:
3rd - 5th grades - Wednesdays, 5:00 - 5:45 PM
Our strength is in our diversity, our love of music, and our dedication to young singers. We will offer two annual concerts, sing for occasional Sunday services, and share our music throughout the city and beyond. For more information, contact Rob Ridgell at 704-714-6942.
This year, through Leap of Faith funding, we are able to offer some of our city’s finest instrumentalists a place to grow and perform. Charlotte Symphony trombonist and WDAV radio personality Tom Burge has put together a new brass quintet. We will help establish this new chamber ensemble by inviting them to serve as our “Artists in Residence” this season. They will perform for Parish Day, Veteran’s Day, Christmas, and Easter, and will provide beautiful trumpet and trombone sounds throughout the year. Most recently, one of the ensemble’s members, John Parker, played trumpet for the funeral of Anne Tomlinson. Welcome to the CLT Brass!
Our Festive Eucharist for Parish Day, on Sunday, September 7 at 10:00 AM in All Saints’ Hall, will include festival classical and contemporary music. The service will begin with Aaron Copland’s “Fanfare for the Common Man,” remembering the thirteenth anniversary of September 11, 2001, which occurs that week. We will sing festive hymn arrangements of “Holy, Holy, Holy” and “All Creatures of Our God and King.” The band will offer music of Chris Tomlin and Hillsong, and in closing we will all sing a little music of Bob Marley as we go out to picnic and enjoy fellowship. Our parish is blessed with so many songs of praise. Please come and offer your voice to God!
Hailing from Pretoria, South Africa, Thabang Masango (tenor) and Bongani Ndhalane (baritone) have lived in the United States for four years. Originally sponsored by Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, both singers attended Central Piedmont Community College under the auspices of a program to help talented South Africans study in the United States. A few years ago, at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright requested they sing. We will welcome them to sing for our 5:00 PM Sunday service on September 28, followed by a reception and mini-concert in the Blue Room. Listen to Thabang and Bongnani sing “You Raise Me Up”»
Experience what Halloween was like in 1923 with Lon Chaney’s film “The Hunchback of Notre Dame," with original organ accompaniment by Rob Ridgell, performed (with a twist) on the Neo-Baroque 1979 Gabriel Kney church pipe organ. For all ages. Come as you are, or dress in an appropriate costume! Free and open to the public.
