Following the success of our first season, Music at St. Luke’s continues with a wonderful array of performances by internationally acclaimed artists. The series begins on Friday, October 29, at 7:30 p.m., with a concert featuring internationally acclaimed cellist, Guy Johnston, with pianist Chiao-Wen Cheng. Their performance, sponsored by Claire and Gordon May, will feature music by J.S. Bach, Edvard Greig, Olivier Messiaen, and the US premiere of Joseph Phibbs’ Sonata for Cello and Piano, composed in 2021 for Johnston.
In addition to several spectacular recitals by Ahreum Han and Stephen Tharp on the Alston Memorial Organ, the sonic brilliance of two instruments recently acquired by St. Luke’s will also be featured. These instruments include a 1910 Steinway grand piano and a single manual harpsichord built by Richard Kingston. The series will once again include Lunchtime Live! – a mini-series of informal 30-minute concerts during the season of Advent. In May, the choirs of All Saints’ and St. Luke’s will combine for a beautiful service of Choral Evensong. The series concludes with the second annual Concert for a Cause featuring acclaimed baritone Sidney Outlaw accompanied at the piano by Warren Jones, a collaborator of international renown. This concert will benefit the mission of Lost-N-Found, a non-profit organization which seeks to end homelessness for LGBTQ youth in Atlanta.
Please continue to support our artistic offerings with your presence and by joining our Friends of Music. I look forward to welcoming you to many of these events.
