Celebrating the Music – Old and New – of the Episcopal Church

This fall, in five locations around the diocese (one in your neighborhood!), the diocesan Commission on Liturgy & Music invites Episcopalians to come together to enjoy the music of our church.

The day will begin with the singing of beloved hymns from The Hymnal 1982; Wonder, Love & Praise; and Lift Every Voice and Sing. When you register for any of the events, you’ll be asked to name a few favorite hymns for leaders to try to include. While many assume our hymns should be accompanied by an organ or other keyboard instrument, a number of other instruments can also be used; anyone who is willing to bring a non-keyboard instrument is encouraged to contact the music leader or to indicate that interest when they register.

These events are FREE, and lunch will be provided. After lunch, we’ll explore many musical possibilities for Morning Prayer and Evensong. The day will close with a brief Evensong.

Registration is available on the diocesan website, diosohio.org. All are welcome, but please register for each session by the date listed below, if possible, so we know how many lunches will be needed.

Please plan to arrive and get settled between 9:30 and 10 a.m. Each program will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For more information, contact Marsha Reilly at mareilly1@columbus.rr.com.
