Announcing the 2012-2013 season of  

Music at Incarnate Word

 

 Join us for our 32nd year of music in the city!

 

Our monthly music series will begin on Sunday, October 14 with a festive Vespers service celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Lutheran Church of the Incarnate Word, and will conclude in May with a unique musical-liturgical event in commemoration of the 150th year since the Battle of Gettysburg.

In between, our season will combine inspiring evening worship with world class artistic talent from Rochester and beyond. From Johann Sebastian Bach to nineteenth-century American folk music; from early Baroque sacred polyphony to German Romantic Lieder;  

all are welcome to our 32nd year of music in the city!

 

 

For up-to-date information, check out our website!

 

 

We continue to be grateful to our sponsors who help enable the growth of the series.
