Art & Spirit Lecture/Demonstration

March 4, 2018 - 12:45pm to 2:00pm

Art & Spirit, Dona Nobis Pacem
Sunday March 4th and Sunday March 11th

March 4th is the first of two Sunday’s that WordSong will be with us at First Church Boston. Music is so important to this congregation, and this event is going to be wonderful! First Church member Larry Thomas Bell will join WordSong composers Howard Frazin Tom Schnauber to compose three different pieces based on the text Dona Nobis Pacem (Offer Us Peace). Each composer will create three arrangements of their pieces: one for solo chorus, one for string quartet, and one for quartet and chorus combined. Very exciting!

Also on March 4th at 12:30 after the service

Calling Courageous Kid Composers!

Composer Tom Schnauber of WordSong has offered to work with the children of Religious Education - and any other children who would like to participate - to create their very own composition on the words “Dona Nobis Pacem” that’s Latin for “Offer Us Peace”. We could use more peace in the world, and music is one way to bring that into being. Three grown-up composers and the choir will be presenting their compositions on that text, and we think our talented and courageous young people should have a chance to weigh in with their own.

Invite your friends! Bring your own instrument if you have one. But, don’t worry about that; we’ll have some on hand. No need for musical talent! Just bring your imagination and creative spark! We’ll have some yummy stuff to eat, and have a lot of fun. Be there, or be square!
