Music at Midday at National City Christian Church begins a new season of free weekly concerts this Friday, September 17, at 12:15 p.m. We are delighted to be welcoming organist Jacob Reed, a Neubauer Family Distinguished Doctoral Fellow at the University of Chicago. Jacob will perform a program of nine short pieces by African American composer Florence Price and a violin concerto by Prince Johann Ernst of Saxe-Weimar that was arranged for organ by Johann Sebastian Bach.
Currently the District of Columbia is requiring all persons, whether vaccinated or not, to wear masks at public indoor spaces. We will follow this and any other requirement put in place to protect the public health.
We have an exciting season planned for the coming year and hope that you will be able to join us for at least some of the wonderful recitals that will take place. You can view the complete list of performers for the fall season by clicking here.
For those who are still not able to join us in person, we will 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 after the live performance with links or just watch our Facebook page for a post.

Our concert series is self-supporting. We rely on the support of people like you to make possible the amazing recitals we experience here each week. As we look forward to another year of awe-inspiring musical performances, I would like to ask you to consider making a gift to help us continue and expand our Music at Midday offerings.
