Cornerstone kicks off Friends of Music season at Holy Trinity

GREENVILLE — Friends of Music at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, will present Cornerstone Chorale and Brass, a professional touring ensemble, at 7 p.m. Oct. 7.

The program, co-sponsored by Thiel College Guest Lecture & Artist Series, features 31 singers from the U.S., a brass quintet, narrators and a pianist.

It's currently on a 3-week tour that includes 18 performances in Central and Eastern U.S.A.

Casavant pipe organist, Kathryn Gray, of Thiel College, will perform several hymns along with Cornerstone at the performance.

This year's theme, called "I Make All Things New," is a unique spiritual experience. It combines choral and instrumental music with narration that focuses on faith and Christ's call to serve others.

The group is marking its twenty-fourth year of uplifting programs, which are designed to encourage people to live their faith at a higher level of commitment - especially in reaching out to those in need.

It has performed in 388 venues in the U.S. and Canada, and had formerly been at Holy Trinity twice.

Cornerstone is the creation of conductor Dr. Bruce Vantine.

Each year, Vantine chooses a performance theme - often from scripture - and a variety of choral and instrumental pieces of music. He collects quotations from both sacred and secular sources, and composes musical interludes.

Vantine then carefully weaves all the elements together to create a seamless texture of music and the spoken word.

The presentations have been described as "wonderful musical creations with a powerful and essential message."

Friends of Music combines the music and outreach ministries of Holy Trinity to present live performances of quality music that enrich the lives of the congregation and the community.

It is the congregation's desire to be a caring neighbor and to share the Lutheran tradition and appreciation of fine music.

Cornerstone will open the seventeenth season of Friends of Music. It is free and open to the public, but an offering will be taken from anyone who wishes to support the series.

The church is located at the corner of Penn Avenue and Clinton Street. It is lift-accessible at the Clinton entrance.

  • rel girlz stenzel 1.jpg for REL Girlz Gone Right offers lessons on life, sex, respect

    Baptists don't have sex standing up because it looks too much like dancing.
    This was the type of candor presented by Pam Stenzel for recent back-to-back programs at Grove City Alliance Church in Pine Township about sex and sexuality.
    The comic relief served to lighten the mood due to much weightier subject matter Stenzel addressed at the talks; mainly, the prevalence of STDs among young women that can destroy their fertility, future Ð and even lives.
