Music and Worship News
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!
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.
A special service of Holy Eucharist and thanksgiving, remembering those who have died. To add a name to the list of those remembered in this service, email Christy Letanosky at email@example.com.
Our artists-in-residence, the CLT Brass, are offering a Veterans Day Concert at 12 noon on Tuesday, November 11 in the Church. Music will include an Armed Forces medley and "America the Beautiful," as well as several lesser known works by American composers Daniel Pinkham and David Marlatt. Join us for this special celebration in honor of our country’s veterans. This event is free of charge and open to the public.
Our community music initiatives are now reaching over 150 singers. These include parish-wide programs (Children's Music Clubs, Youth and Adult Bands/Choirs), outreach chorister programs at Rama Road Elementary and the Brookstone Schools, and Senior Choir at The Cypress. For more information on how to join these music programs, or to volunteer, please contact Rob Ridgell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704.714.6942.
