Please join us this Friday, October 8, at 12:15 p.m., for our free weekly Music at Midday concert. We are delighted to be welcoming back Chicago pianist Mark Valenti, who will perform music on the church’s magnificent Steinway concert grand piano that will make your spirit soar.
This Friday’s program includes:
- Estampes (Prints), 1903 – Claude Debussy
- Sonata No. 30 in E Major, Op. 109, 1820 – Ludwig van Beethoven
Mark Valenti received his Master of Music from Northwestern University and his Bachelor of Music from the Philadelphia Musical Academy. In addition to giving solo recitals in cities throughout the U.S., Mr. Valenti has performed in France, Belgium, Hungary, and Luxembourg, as well as for former First Lady Barbara Bush in Washington, D.C.
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.
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.
