I am excited to begin my fourth year as Director of Music & Organist at GSL. There have been a few pandemic bumps in the road, but I’m grateful that last year we were able to have a fairly normal choral season and things look to be even better now! We have some wonderful events and some fabulous music planned for the fall.
We’ll celebrate the Feast of St. Luke on October 16 in both of our morning services as well as Choral Evensong in the afternoon. I’ve invited Bruce Neswick to serve as our guest choirmaster for that weekend. Bruce will retire in September as Canon for Music at Trinity Cathedral in Portland, Oregon. Prior to his appointment there, he was on faculty at Indiana University and formerly served the Cathedrals of St. John the Divine in New York City, St. Philip in Atlanta, St. Paul in Buffalo, and Washington National Cathedral.
On November 6 at 6 p.m., we’ll observe the Feast of All Saints’ with a Choral Requiem by Gabriel Fauré. Written for choir, organ, and orchestra, we’ll join with members of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra to present this incredible work which serves as a significant piece in the history of choral literature.
