Jeremy Begbie teaches systematic theology and specializes in the interface between theology and the arts. His particular research interest is in the interplay between music and theology.

The Christ Church Choir and instrumentalists of the Charlotte Symphony will perform “Choral Masterworks”, featuring the very powerful Jesu, meine Freude by J. S. Bach, Francis Poulenc’s Litanies à la vierge noire which he composed toward “new dimensions and greater depth”, and parts of Igor Stravinsky’s austere and anti-romantic Mass composed in 1948. An offering will be taken to benefit the music program of Rama Road Elementary School as part of our music education outreach.
The Christ Church Schola Cantorum sings Gregorian Chant and other contemplative music including Thomas Tallis' "Lamentations of Jeremiah" in a candlelit, worshipful time of Holy Week.
An old-fashioned sing-along with the Voices of Love Gospel Choir and Friends of the Urban Ministry Center. Music will include choir selections as well as audience participation. Dinner will be served at 6:00 PM for those who might like to have a little one-on-one with the members of the choirs. Come enjoy this evening of fellowship, food, and song!
Rob Ridgell, Director of Music and the Arts of Christ Episcopal Church and Tom Burge, Trombonist with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra will perform a fantastic and unusual Mother’s Day Concert featuring Franz Liszt’s “Hosannah”, Sonata in A by Francesco Saverio Geminiani, Piece Symphonique by Alexandre Guilmant and Two Invocations by Petr Eben.
