Please join us at National City Christian Church next Friday, October 2, at 12:15 p.m., for a performance by organist Theodore S. Davis. The concert will feature music by African American composer Florence Price and French composer Henri Mulet.
This concert is part of the church’s free weekly Music at Midday concert series. We will be opening the building for those who wish to attend the concert in person. We will follow local guidelines on the number of people allowed into the building and will have positions roped off where audience members may sit. Masks will be required to enter the building and will be available for those who need them. Also, we will not be providing printed programs but instead have posted a full program which you may download to view on your mobile device or print for your own use.

We will also be recording the concert and will post it later in the day on the church’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. Look for an email message on Friday afternoon with links or just watch our Facebook page for a post.
