Chancel Choir Cantata

On Sunday, April 15, the Chancel Choir will present their annual spring cantata. This year, they will perform The Holy Spirit Mass: Together in Hope, a wonderful choral work by the internationally renowned Norwegian composer, Kim André Arnesen, who writes music that combines touching simplicity with majestic power. The choir will be accompanied by a 17-piece string orchestra and guest singers.

The work was commissioned to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation as an ecumenical offering drawing on both the traditional Latin mass and Lutheran musical heritage. Its first performance was at an interfaith concert by the National Lutheran Choir in Washington DC last year, so this is an exciting opportunity to hear a major new choral piece within a year of its world première.

Please invite your family and friends to experience this musical celebration of our faith at both the 9:30 and 11:00am services.
