Christ Church to Host Multiple Music Events This Weekend


This Sunday, October 29, Christ Church in Easton will present multiple music events and invites the public to attend.  During the 11:00 a.m. service the Christ Church Brass will present music of the Reformation in Benjamin Culli’s Reformation Suite.  Carlos Zabala, a frequent trumpeter at Christ Church, will perform in collaboration with organ Voluntary for Trumpet and Organ by Domecq Smith.  Also, included in the musical lineup will be Sonata da Chiesa by Charles Callahan.  An original composition in three movements, the piece is characterized by expansive, flowing lines for the brass and its ongoing dialogue with the organ played by Dale Krider.  Concluding the morning service will be the brilliantly festive La Rejoussance from Handel’s Water Music Suite.  Prelude music will begin at 10:50 a.m.

At 6 pm in the evening, theater organist Michael Britt returns for the third consecutive year to accompany on the large screen the 1923 silent film classic The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The program, sponsored in part by the Talbot County and Maryland state arts councils, has become one of the highlights of the Christ Church Concert Series drawing enthusiasts of all ages for this capacity crowd event.  Doors open at 5:30 pm and early arrival is recommended.  Attendees are asked to note the time change of the event which is necessary for showing of the film.
