“Seven Last Words of Christ”
Performed by the
Dodd String Quartet
on period instruments with narration by Mark Strand
Claire Jolivet & Theresa Salomon, violins
Jessica Troy, viola
Lindy Clarke, cello
Joseph Haydn’s, Seven Last Words of Christ is an intensely spiritual work based on Jesus Christ’s last words on the cross. Paired with Mark Strand’s beautiful poetry, this concert is sure to speak to the heart with great intensity, culminating with an earthquake rendered by string quartet!
The Dodd String Quartet is one of the very few quartets today performing on period instruments. Focusing on the 100 years that saw the birth and subsequent evolution of the string quartet, the Quartet enjoys exploring rarely performed works alongside the glorious mainstays of the quartet repertoire, from the late Baroque through early Romanticism. The Quartet has performed in the United States and Europe to critical and popular acclaim, and been presented in venues such as the Times Center and Merkin Hall.
Suggested $20/ticket donation gratefully accepted at the door.
Refreshments will be served.
Come and enjoy this special concert!
No matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here. We are an open and affirming congregation!
A Place for Worship
We meet together to focus our attention on God, giving praise and receiving blessings and inspiration, and spiritual refreshment. We hope this is what you experience here.
A Place for Learning
To us, studying the Bible is vital because it not only informs us intellectually, but also guides us spirituality, a Book that is alive and relevant to life today.
A Place for Enrichment
For every person at every age level we offer a wealth of opportunities — programs and ministries for children, youth and adults which fill the church calendar. You can be sure that in this kaleidoscope of activities there’s more than one place where you can contribute and be personally enriched.
A Place for Friendship
Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian community. That’s why we make it a priority to build lasting bonds among the members of our church family — bonds of concern and genuine commitment to one another.
We’re happy to have recently installed a stair lift enabling everyone to have safe, easy access from the main parking lot to our upper level in order to attend services and events.
A Place for Service
Just as Jesus Christ came “not to be served, but to serve …,” we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. This applies both within the church family and in the wider community. We look forward to serving you, and we hope to see you again
