Advent Music

December 10, 3:00pm

A reflective service of Evening Prayer will surround seasonal music by Johannes Brahms, including a complete performance of his first clarinet sonata. Silvio Guitian will play the clarinet, and the First Choir will add luster to this holiday event.

The concert will immediately precede the retirement party for Pastor Jimmy Madsen

Advent Music is an annual event at First Lutheran, based on the Abendmusiken (evening music) made famous by Dieterich Buxtehude and Hugo Distler in Lübeck, Germany. Set within the framework of the Evening Prayer, these events use magnificent music to enhance the service and move the listener. This reflective service is a perfect way to slow down during the busy holiday season.

This concert is free and open to the public. It is part of First Lutheran's FIRST•music concert series, whose goal comes from the church's vision statement: to "use our musical resources to enhance our experience of God and as a gift to the community."
