Dear Friends,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 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.

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!

Kinnara: Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil

September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Friends of Music Signature Concert of the Season:  Kinnara
Sunday, September 29, 2019
7:00 pm, Sanctuary

Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil
J.D. Burnett, conductor

.

Comprising some of the finest ensemble and solo singers in the country, Kinnara is one of the nation’s premier professional chamber choirs. Under the direction of J.D. Burnett, who also serves as Associate Director of Choral Activities at the University of Georgia, the choir performs a wide variety of standard choral repertoire from all eras. Kinnara strives to honor the capacious choral tradition with exemplary choral experiences that speak to the modern soul.

.

Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vigil is contemplative, intense, and overwhelmingly devotional. It is an other-worldly spectrum of religious sensibility, and comes through as very fervent and full. It’s incredibly sacred and there isn’t another work like it in the choral repertoire. Join nationally-renowned professional chamber choir, Kinnara, for a candlelit hour of this exceptional piece in one of the most beautiful sacred spaces in the country, the PRUMC sanctuary.
