Passion of the Christ: The Musical Stations of the Cross
Sunday, March 18, 2018, 7:00 pm, Sanctuary

Zachary Hemenway, organ
John Lemley, readings
Schola, antiphons

With origins dating back to the Middle Ages, the Stations of the Cross refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion.   Now a Lenten devotion, the object of the stations is to help the Christian faithful make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ.  Take this spiritual Journey with us and find the sacred in Gregorian chant, organ improvisation, the spoken word and candlelight.

$15 suggested concert donation/$5 suggested for students.

The Atlanta Summer Organ Festival was established in 1995 to help increase classical music performances in the summer and PRUMC joined as a host in 2002. To this day, the festival continues the tradition of offering a series of wonderful venues for both established and talented rising your organists.  Most famous for his prodigious technical proficiency and charismatic stage presence, Mr. Olivera’s amazing effect on audiences has made many of the most sophisticated and demanding organ aficionados claim that Maestro Hector Olivera is “one of the greatest organists in the world today.”
