Mini-concerts offer Relief from the Rush!

Free half-hour mini-concerts at PEACE offer a musical retreat that lets you connect to the real meaning of Christmas.

This music will evoke a joyous state that lends itself to waiting, watching and contemplating – the traditional mood in the weeks before Christmas.

We would love to help you reconnect with the spirit of Christmas! These mini-concerts offer an antidote to the hype and hysteria of commercial holidays.

Mini-concerts start at 5:30 p.m. every Wednesday in December before Christmas

WEDNESDAY, Dec. 4: Colla Voce Youth Chorus – under the direction of Anne Vaaler

WEDNESDAY, Dec. 11: A String Trio with Ann Gaines on violin, Judy Bromley on viola & Martha Brown on cello

WEDNESDAY, Dec. 18: A Voice Duet – with Judy Kenney & John Simon

After each concert, we invite you to stay for a short prayer service starting at about 6 p.m. The format of Holden Evening Prayer is a natural-feeling continuation of the evening’s mood. Through music and song, we give thanks and praise to our Creator.

These mini-concerts are PEACE’s offering to our community in observation of Advent. During this season, we wait expectantly for God to act in our lives.
