Please join us at National City Christian Church next Friday, September 18, at 12:15 p.m., for a “stellar” performance of richly beautiful music by organist Tyler Canonico (including several movements from John Williams’ score for Star Wars).
This concert will be the first in the 2020-2021 season 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. To download the program, click here.
We will also be recording the concert and will post it later in the day on the church’s YouTube channel and on the Music at Midday Facebook page. Look for an email message on Friday afternoon with links or just watch our Facebook page for a post.
