Music for October 9 & Upcoming Events

The music of classical composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) will be highlighted during Sunday’s 9am and 11am services. Soprano soloist Kaeli Porter will sing the glorious Laudate Dominum from Mozart’s Solemn Vespers for a Confessor, set to the shortest psalm text in the Bible (Psalm 117: “O, praise the Lord”). You will also hear keyboard works by Mozart for the prelude and postlude.

Looking ahead, we invite you to two music program events. “Soup & Sing!” is on Wednesday, October 12, at 5:30 pm. Children, families, parents, and singers of all ages are welcome to come share a simple soup supper before we sing together, led by Choir Director Brian Fairbanks. This intergenerational event is particularly suited to young people (and their families) who are interested in our youth choir program, the St. Michael’s Choristers. We’ll wrap up the evening no later than 6:45pm. Let Hannah, Brian, or Leslie Sackett know if you’re coming so we can be sure to prepare enough soup!

Finally, our first Choral Evensong since before the pandemic will be held on Wednesday, October 19, at 7:00 pm. The choir is preparing Stanford’s Magnificat and Nunc dimittis in G, Henry Balfour Gardiner’s Evening Hymn and lots more transcendent music! This beautiful, traditional service will last less than an hour and is a chance to immerse yourself in the familiar Anglican structure and music-filled resonance of Evensong.
