ABOUT THE MUSIC 

 

This Sunday we welcome Michael Katz from Portland as our guest musician.  Mr. Katz is a superb classical guitarist and teacher.  His selections are beautiful ones especially for this time of Lent.

For prelude he will play “Etude #5” by Spanish composer Fernando Sor (1778-1839).  For offertory his selection is “Lagrima” by Spanish composer Francisco Tarrega (1852-1909).  For postlude he will play “Oblivion” by Argentinian composer Astor Piazzola (1921-1992).  Please welcome him!

The St. Nicholas Chimers will have a short rehearsal after Coffee Hour.  Come join us!

Next Sunday, March 17, master drummer Eric Reburn will again lead us in a drum circle.  We had 15 participants last time.  If you were not one of them, try this wonderful experience.  Mr. Reburn volunteers his time and all his percussion instruments for our drum circle.  Please express your appreciation to him for this kind gesture!
