Dear Friends,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 series of wonderful music making at Peachtree Road UMC.  We have been blessed with a truly magnificent space and it is only right that equally exquisite music goes in it.

Peachtree Road believes that “every perfect gift is from above.”  With this in mind, we are dedicated to bringing enriching music and performances to our church family.  Music has the ability to profoundly touch our hearts and souls.  This series is an excellent way to enrich your life through the energy and beauty expressed through a live performance.  I encourage you to take a few moments to learn about each concert, the program and artists.  You may download a pdf of our concert season here.

I also invite you to join us in supporting the arts through our Friends of Music Program.  Through your generosity we are able to bring nationally and internationally renowned artists to our church and city.  It is an important way to keep the arts thriving in our church and community, and to help bring new music lovers and guests to this divine space.

Come celebrate with us and bring your friends to share in the gift of music.  As ever, we are thrilled to bring the arts to Peachtree Road!

Specializing in works written for two performers, The Chenaults have commissioned, arranged and premiered over fifty organ duets, thereby making “organ music for four hands, four feet” synonymous with “The Chenaults.” $15 suggested donation.

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.
