CONCERTS & SPECIAL MUSIC
Christ Church offers music programs including special services for the church year and a recital series.
Music at Christ Church, our recital series, features talented musical artists, local and out-of-town, in our Nave. Recent recitals have featured Monica Raphael, soloist; Erika Butters, soloist; Erica Spear, flautist; Amanda LaBrecque, oboist; Ellie Roberts, singer; and the Youth Big Band from Flensburg, Germany.
Choral Evensong is sung three times per year. This beautiful ancient evening service is often preceded by a short recital.
A Requiem is presented on All Saints’ Day. Recent services have included requiems of John Rutter and Gabriel Fauré, complete with organ and instrumentalists.
Passiontide Service is a time of music and meditation on Good Friday. Some Passiontide Services have included music and readings. In 2019, the choir presented Bob Chilcott’s St. John Passion.
Lessons & Carols is sung each Advent and features choirs and instrumentalists from Christ Church. The 2022 service featured Britten's Ceremony of Carols.
Taizé services, short meditative sung services, are held each fifth Sunday in the Chapel.
