NEXT UP: Mardi Gras Concert
Tuesday, March 4, 2014 7:00 p.m. (please note updated concert time)
The Bonifantes Boychoir from from Pardubice in the Czech Republic sings a program of classical and folk music with a few surprises in store! Known for their thorough music education academy, and winning rapport with American audiences, Bonifantes will astound and delight in this evening showcasing the vast potential of well-trained children (including changed-voice teenagers) in the choral medium. Tickets $10, $7 seniors/students. This concert immediately follows a Mardi Gras dessert "pre-reception" at 6 pm in the Parish Hall.
A bit of history...
Our expanded series of musical offerings to the Parish and wider community began in September 2011. The name of the series makes reference to our front doors, with their traditional color of welcome and sanctuary. The series has helped to establish St. John's as a destination for those seeking musical refreshment and excellence, drawing on the existing strengths of our choirs (and guest choirs and choir collaborations), architecture, organ, location, and Anglican heritage. The three main elements provided by the series are: concerts, monthly evening worship (Evensong), and enhanced Sunday morning worship on more occasions throughout the year (with special offerings with instruments, or formats like Lessons and Carols).
In advance of the first program year, Sacred Music at the Red Door hosted a special event in May, 2011 at the New Britain Museum of American Art. This event was free and open to the entire Parish, as a thank-you to leadership donors and to describe the plans for the first season. Photographs from the event and from other series events are posted on the Facebook page for the Series (Sacred Music at the Red Door). You can also follow us on Twitter @SacMusicRedDoor.
We hope to see you at the Red Door often!
