The Labor Day weekend marks the resumption of full choral services, when our choir will reconvene and offer their gifts to worship. Dr. Philip Barnes, Director of Music, announced the choir's selections will focus on two giants of the baroque, Henry Purcell and Antonio Vivaldi, followed by the inspirational writing of Fanny Crosby and finally music of Alfred Schnittke, an enigmatic German-Russian composer who died in 1998.
Following the 11 a.m. morning Worship service on September 4th, you are invited to enjoy a light lunch of pizza and salad before returning to the Sanctuary at 1 p.m. for a concert by Third's own Eliot Barnes.
He will play a selection of classical guitar solos by Bach, Albeniz, and Roland Dyens.
The following week he begins his studies at the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University.
Admission to the 1 p.m. concert is free.
