What a Musical March! In addition to each Sunday's mellifluous singing by choir and congregation, there are unique offerings on Saturdays throughout March. The first two offer exploration in Becoming Beloved Community and Connections. The third features Casavant Opus 3941 in a smorgasbord of organ repertoire. Friday, March 4: 5:30-6:30, join members of Grace and members of the larger community in a Reflection on walking the Way of Love (the image would be great)
Saturday, March 5: 9:30-noon rehearsal for musicians; 2pm Concert led by musicians Dr. Brandon A. Boyd, Martha Burford, Dr. Kyle Nielsen, and Paul Vasile. Joined by the choir of Grace and other singers, and Ben Worth on Bass, Tim Harrison on percussion
Saturday, March 19: The Greater Richmond Children's Choir and Rockbridge Youth Chorale present a joint concert at Grace. Casavant Opus 3941 will play a part in the program of music focused on Creation and Care of Creation. GRCC commissioned Grace's Martha Burford to write a piece, and she was granted permission by the Jesse Stuart Foundation to set the poet laureate's "Call It God." Come hear it and all of their rich repertoire.
Saturday, March 26: Dr. Christopher Reynolds, Director of Music and Organist at St. Paul's, Richmond, Virginia, and Rockbridge County native, will present a program of organ works by Bach, Mendelssohn, Parry, Franck, and others.
These are all varied and unique offerings! I hope you will invite friends to join you and immerse yourselves in the connections and music.
In dulci jubilo,
