The Concert Series
An outreach endeavor of the Music Department, the Concert Series came gradually into being around 1990 and hit full stride by 1995. Primarily featuring the organ, concerts have also included the piano, the Chancel Handbell Choir, staff soloists and other vocal and instrumental members of the department as well as invited guest performers. The series has also included individuals and groups from outside the church, a practice we hope to continue and expand.
The concerts have specific themes, such as “In the Garden,” “Hail! Thou Ever-Blessed Morn,” “Grand Opera for Grand Organ” and “From Stage and Screen.” Many years the Christmas concert has been held in conjunction with the Village of La Grange “Hometown Christmas Walk.” A unique feature of our concerts is the extended intermission during which delicious refreshments are served. Admission is generally without charge, although a free-will offering is accepted to benefit a special project, fund, charity or organization.
