Please join us at National City Christian Church this Friday, May 27, at 12:15 p.m., for our weekly Music at Midday recital. We are delighted to be welcoming Matthew Dion, who currently serves as Organ Scholar at Christ Church Cathedral (Episcopal) in Houston, Texas, while also pursuing an M.M. in Sacred Music at the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music.
This week’s program is rich and varied:
- Grand Choeur, Benedicamus Domino– Guy Weitz
- Élevation, Tierce en Taille (Messe pour les Couvents) – François Couperin
- Prelude and Fugue in A minor, BWV 543 – J. S. Bach
- Trois Pièces, Op. 29 (I. Prélude) – Gabriel Pierné
- Suite No. 1 for Organ (III. Air) – Florence Price
- Te Deum, Op. 11 – Jeanne Demessieux
Currently the wearing of masks is optional but highly recommended. For those who are not able to join us in person, we will be recording the concert and will post it on the church’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
