Midweek Music Ministry (ONLINE)
July 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT
Shadyside Presbyterian Church’s Music Ministry presents a midweek program for the refreshment of your spirit!
Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m.
Continuing in the month of July, Shadyside Presbyterian Church’s Music Ministry invites you to join us online on Wednesday evenings for a mini-series of musical programs curated by Mark A. Anderson, Artistic Director of the Music in a Great Space concert series. Throughout the summer, enjoy the sounds of organ, piano, harpsichord, and other instrumentalists, as well as vocal soloists singing in various virtual combinations. Videos of these intimate presentations will be accessible to view on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
The program for Wednesday, July 29, presents a celebration of the music of Russell G. Wichmann, who served as Director of Music and Organist at Shadyside Presbyterian Church from 1936 to 1987. July 29 would have been his 108th birthday. Along with a brief reflection from the Reverend Todd E. Leach, Associate Pastor for Missions, the following choral compositions by Mr. Wichmann will be featured: “Praise Ye the Lord,” “People of God,” “God of Our Life,” “Dayspring of Eternity,” and settings of Psalms 121 and 148. These anthems will be offered in archival recordings of the Shadyside Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir, along with featured soloists: Margaret Ross Mehl, soprano; Debra Borkovich, mezzo-soprano; Jonathan Absalom, tenor; and Robert Calvert, baritone.
