On Sunday, January 19, 2020, the Mission Outreach Committee is hosting a Pajama and Book Drive. The Pajama Program has been caring for children in shelters and foster care and other local organizations that serve families who struggle to make ends meet by providing pajamas and books. These gifts help provide an opportunity for a loving bedtime routine, which leads to a peaceful good night and a positive good day. Share the love of God to children in our community by bringing new books and/or new pajamas in sizes from infant to Adult XXL for teenagers. The collection begins on Sunday, January 5, 2020 and ends on January 19, 2020.
On Sunday, January 19, 2020 at 4 p.m., three artists and Don Cannarozzi, our Director of Music, will be presenting a recital, "The 3 B's: Bach, Beethoven, and Brahms". Although the title may be a bit trite, the music on the program is not. Don will begin with the Toccata in E minor by J.S. Bach. Next, Robyn Lamp will sing Beethoven's vocally demanding concert aria, Ah Perfido (Ah, treacherous one). Then concert cellist Iris Van Eck and Don Cannarozzi will perform Beethoven's first cello sonata in F major. The piece is tuneful and full of the youthful vigor found in Beethoven's early works. The concert will conclude with Birgit Fioravante singing Brahms's Zigunerlieder (Gypsy songs), a set of songs about a gypsy's love and life. The concert is free and casual.
