I've had a great time designing this collaborative singing-and-service event with representatives of the participating congregations!

Participating congregations: Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, First Congregational Church, First United Methodist Church, Wesley Temple AME Zion Church, and Church of the Open Door.

We’ll celebrate with many instruments and voices, witnessing to God’s active work in our diverse community.

Te Deum: "The King of Instruments"

Online only

I'm excited to collaborate with the choral ensemble Te Deum, conducted by its founder, executive and artistic director Matthew Christopher Shepard, in the closing concert of their 13th season, exploring the grand repertoire for choir and organ.

Mozart once wrote: “in my eyes and ears the organ will forever be the King of Instruments.” This concert is designed around pieces that speak of comfort, triumph, the communicative power of music and community, while demonstrating the power of this towering instrument.
