Into the Light, for SATB Choir and Chamber Orchestra

 On March 29th, we welcome Jake Runestad as our composer-in-residence at the 10:30 service.  Runestad is a Grammy nominated and frequently-performed composer of “highly imaginative” (Baltimore Sun) and “stirring and uplifting” (Miami Herald) musical works.   He will be with the Chancel Choir in rehearsal and with our congregation at the 10:30 service.   Runestad believes that music has the power to initiate positive change and creates musical works that are socially conscious and explore authentic human emotions and experiences.   Conductors, performers, and audiences continue to praise his music for its ability to connect with the head and the heart.  We will perform his chamber cantata Into the Light with orchestra.  Don’t miss this exciting worship service!
