Friends Of Music Concert Series

 

 

friends of musicThe Friends of Music was organized to present an occasional series of varied musical concerts at Community Presbyterian Church for Church members and the community at large. 








The objectives of the series are:

  • To provide entertainment and joy to community members and their families.
  • To share our love of music and its transformative power.
  • To publicize CPC as a friendly congregation, open to sharing a variety of musical performing experiences with the community.  
  • To provide a venue and a performance outlet, beyond Sunday worship services, for the exceptionally talented musicians of CPC and their friends.  
  • To raise funds, from Free-Will Offerings, for other musical events at CPC.

Past concerts have featured small groups of musicians such as;

  • the woodwind quintet Quintessence (flute, oboe, clarinet, French horn, bassoon),
  • the chamber ensemble, The Bösendorfer Consort (piano, flute, oboe, bassoon),
  • guest vocalists,
  • and a small jazz combo! 


In December 2016, the Friends of Music presented a special concert for the Advent season – the Almighty Jazz Band (a 17-piece “Big Band” with vocalist) which incorporated “swing” classics to modern big band hits, and concluded with specially arranged Christmas seasonal favorites. 

Future concerts will be presented 3-4 times each year, and will encompass a variety of personnel, ensembles, and musical genres.  The entire community is always invited to attend.
