St. Catherine’s Episcopal Church will celebrate the gift of a new grand piano with a service of Choral Evensong at 5 p.m. next Sunday, Nov. 4.
Evensong is the traditional service of Evening Prayer – prayers said at the end of each day – with the addition of choral musical elements.
The service will feature music by Organist Dr. Jana Williams, St. Catherine's Chancel Choir and special musicians. The service will last about 60 minutes and a reception will follow the service.
The public is welcome and there is no charge for admission.
This service marks the beginning of the 2012-2013 Concert Series and, hopefully, a tradition for many years to come. The concerts for the inaugural season include:
- Dec. 2 - Contemporary Advent Lessons and Carols presented by St. Catherine’s Chancel Choir;
- Jan. 22 - Joint Concert by the Georgia State University Concert Choir and Walton High School School A Cappella Choir;
- March 23 - Coro Vocati presents their spring program, “The Sacred and the Profane, Part II;'
- May 4 - Atlanta Sacred Chorale at St. Catherine’s.
