Trinity Episcopal Church (Concord) and the Choir School at Grace Church (Salem) invite you to hear their young choristers on Sunday, December 2 at 4 PM in Trinity's intimate Chapel at 81 Elm Street in Concord. The combined young choirs will sing Choral Evensong featuring canticle settings (Magnificat and Nunc dimittis) by Bairstow and choral responses by Robert Barney.
Robert Barney is music director of the Trinity Parish Choirs including the Trinity Youth Choir. Mark Engelhardt, founder and director of The Choir School at Grace Church in Salem, served for 16 years as organist and director of music at St Paul's Cathedral in Boston. Both directors are firmly committed to quality choral singing, especially for young musicians.
Both of their youth choirs follow the Royal School of Church Music program, encouraging a high level of music training and education, developing social, leadership and team skills, and developing a better understanding of five centuries of sacred music.
This service lasts about 40 minutes and provides a contemplative break from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. This finishes in ample time for families to join Concord's community holiday celebrations later in the day.
A free-will offering will be accepted. For further information on this and other music programs at Trinity Episcopal Church, please call 978/369-3715 or visit www.trinityconcord.org.
