Music at Midday, our free weekly concert series, resumes this Friday, February 4, at 12:15 p.m. Recitals will be held each Friday through the end of June, with the exception of Good Friday, April 15. Because of the recent surge of COVID infections, the District of Columbia requires all those attending the concert to show proof of vaccination, to wear masks at all times inside the building, and to observe social distancing. For those who are 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.
