St. Luke's Music Series 
Two events remain for the spring season: 
 
Monday night , March 18 at 7:00, the Derby City Brass will present a concert.  Admission is free, please invite a friend!
 
Sunday, March 31 at 5:00 pm, we'll present a special service of Lenten Meditations and Carols, similar to the more familiar Christmas Lessons and Carols format.  This service is modeled after one sung at St. John's College, Cambridge.
 
Glenna Metcalf, Organist at Broadway Baptist Church, Louisville, will present an organ recital of Lenten music at 5:00 pm; then at 5:30 pm St. Luke's choir will present Lenten anthems paired with contemplative readings, both scriptural and poetic as we reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ for the salvation of the world.  Anthems by William Byrd, Antonio Lotti, Brench Boden, George Oldroyd and Cristobal de Morales, as well as familiar hymns will be sung.
 
This service will be a wonderful centering experience as we prepare for Holy Week and Easter at a lovely and quiet time of the day. 
 
Please mark your calendars and save the dates for these two events and help us spread the word about St. Luke's wonderful concert series.
