Musical Mondays Concert Series - Season Opener!
September 26, 2011 at 8 pm
In our continuing effort to present young artists, "Houli" is the latest sensation, and we are delighted to open our third season with his extraordinary talents. On Monday, September 26 at 8:00 pm, hear why The American Organist described Houli as a major talent whose star is destined to brightly shine over the horizon for years to come. Music enthusiasts who attended this summer’s concert at CHUMC for the Organ Historical Society were overheard to say that any performance by Houli was not to be missed.
During concert season 2010-2011, Houli was a featured performer at two regional conventions of the American Guild of Organists. He also made another European tour and inaugurated the newly installed pipe organ at the Sondheim Performing Arts Center in Iowa. He studied with the Grammy Award-winning organist Paul Jacob while doing his graduate degree work at The Juilliard School in New York.
Christopher Houlihan’s performance will be followed by a reception in the parlor where guests can enjoy time with the artist and savory refreshments. Both concert and repast are free, but donations are gratefully received. Pledge cards to support CHUMC’s “Musical Mondays” also are available at each concert and through the church office. Additionally, donations may be made in honor of or in memory of a loved one.
The concert season continues in 2012 with a January 30 performance by the U.S. Army Chorus and a May 7 performance by a master of improvisation, organist Tom Trenney. Trenney’s program will be accompanied by a silent film.
If taking the subway, use either Capitol South or Eastern Market metro stops; if driving, use on-street parking. For more information, contact the church office at 202-546-1000
The “Musical Mondays” concerts have become a favorite community occurrence. At each concert, new friends discover CHUMC, its music, its people and its hospitality.
Do you find yourself wondering...
What is going on in Haiti since the 2010 earthquake? How are churches, NGOs, and individuals helping (or not)? What can we do to connect with the people ofHaiti?
Or...How do you plant seeds when the land has no topsoil? How can you make an oven out of a cardboard box and tin foil? Should you ever try to get to Port au Prince by riding on top of a coal truck?
Or...What exactly is Haitian food?
To answer these and other questions, mark your calendars for the next CHUM Women event: On Monday, August 15th, at 6:45pm, CHUMC member Kara Scroggins will offer pictures (see left) and stories from her recent work with a reforestation project in Haiti. Everyone (men, women, children, visitors, family, friends, neighbors!) is welcome to come for a Haitian dinner, slideshow, and conversation.
If you are planning to attend (even if you have already RSVP'd), please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can make sure there is enough food. A donation can be made by writing a check to CHUMC with "Haiti" in the subject line, and if you would like to help with drinks or paper goods, email Carol Anderson at email@example.com.
Hope to see you there!
