Julie Vidrick Evans, Organist
The Apollo Orchestra – Stephen Czarkowski, Conductor


Music at Midday is proud to be presenting twice-weekly virtual concerts, today featuring organist Julie Vidrick Evans and the Apollo Orchestra, under the direction of Stephen Czarkowski. This performance took place in 2015 at Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church. We are grateful to the musicians who are sharing their performances with us during a time of pandemic and social isolation. During this Easter week, as we rejoice in the rising of Jesus Christ from the dead, we hope that this music will help you enter into the wonder of God’s love for us.
