In addition to hymns and anthems sung at regular worship services, Music at St. Andrew's strives to continue our rich musical heritage through concert series, special music services, and other concerts.
Join us for six free performances, each approximately 45 minutes long, on select Sundays at 7:15 pm.
The goal of these programs is to draw you into a state of contemplation, and step out of the hurried pace of modern life to be opened to God anew through beauty. We invite you to then stay for our chanted service of Compline that immediately follows each program.
Program Five: Victor Huls and Teagan Faran
Sunday, March 5, 2017 at 7:15 pm
Victor Huls is well known to the Ann Arbor music community, both as a fabulous cellist and as the conductor of the Ann Arbor Camerata. He and Teagan Faran, long time collaborators in a wide variety of musical styles, team up to offer works by HIF Biber, Franz Schubert, Francisco Tárrega, and Mark Summer.
All Music for Meditation programs are free and open to the public
For nearly two millennia, the Church has been the western world's chief patron of music. From the single line of Gregorian chant, to full scale works for orchestra and chorus, composers and musicians have offered prase to God in ways that words alone cannot express. Special music services give us the opportunity to join in those praises that goes beyond our weekly worship.
April 12 at 7:30 pm
As part of Holy Week, members of the St. Andrew’s Adult Choir will chant this ancient monastic service that begins the descent into the shadows and mystery of the sacrifice of the Lamb of God. Psalms and readings alternate with choral responses by Healey Willan.
St. Andrew's is in the process of raising $1.8 million to support the building and installation of a new 'tracker' organ to replace our aging electro-pneumatic organ. This new instrument will be built by Richards, Fowkes & Co., and is designed to last for generations to come.
The new organ will directly benefit the spiritual life of the St. Andrew's congregation and will also be an additional resource and gift to the cultural life of the Ann Arbor community in which St. Andrew's has long played an active role. ABOUT THE ORGAN PROJECT
Missa Cellensis, Hob. XXII.5
May 21, 2017 at 4:00 pm
The combined choirs of the St. Andrew's Adult Choir and The Vocal Arts Ensemble and soloists, accompanied by The Ann Arbor Camerata, will present the complete Missa Cellensis of Haydn as the final fundraiser concert of the season for the new Richards, Fowkes & Co. organ at St. Andrew's.
Have your concert or recital at St. Andrew's!
Interested in using St. Andrew's as a venue for your upcoming concert or recital? Although St. Andrew's sanctuary is always available for rent, we will consider waiving the rental fee for recitalists if the musician is willing to give back to the St. Andrew's community by participating in a liturgy or concert (known as a reciprocal event). This arrangement is made with the approval of Dr. Deborah Friauff, our Director of Music.
Fees of $25 per hour are still incurred due to the necessity of hiring a building monitor to open and close the building as well as handle set up. Piano tuning may also be needed. Paperwork must be completed with the Parish Administrator, Kathy McPherson.
