Trombones of the Saint Louis Symphony
Since 2006, the Trombones of the Saint Louis Symphony have taken their finely-honed ensemble skills from the symphonic concert stage to intimate chamber music settings across the United States. The International Trombone Association Journal, in a review of their most recent recording Fleur de Lis cited “an astonishing amount of versatility and virtuosity”. The Trombones will present works they have commissioned from composers with strong St. Louis roots including Caleb Burhans (Alarm Will Sound) and Adam Maness (The 442s). They also will perform their own arrangements of works by Giovanni Gabrieli, Sergei Prokofiev, and others.
In Their Own Words Concert – Sunday, February 16 at 3:00 p.m.
“The Power of Spirituals” is an interactive event based on Eileen Guenther’s recently-published book In Their Own Words: Slave Life and the Power of Spirituals. In this program Guenther, a graduate of Kirkwood High School, combines first-person narratives from books written by those formerly enslaved, interviews conducted with them in the 1930s and her own commentary. These narratives are interwoven with the singing of spirituals by guest soprano and St. Louis native Marlissa Hudson, our Ladue Chapel Choir, and the audience. Many Americans have gaps in their historic and cultural education; this powerful music and the texts of this presentation not only shine a light on the events of the past, but also offer hope and reconciliation to present-day circumstances.
The Vision Team works cohesively to generate and be accountable for goals towards developing an overall dynamic leadership in our Presbytery. Goals and milestones that they establish will be reviewed at Vision Team meetings providing a measurable system for focus, effectiveness and accountability.
Monthly meeting schedule is the third Thursday of each month, at the presbytery office, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Meets the fourth Monday of the month, at 1 p.m.
Harold Lloyd shows his talents in this 1927 American classic comedy silent film. Still considered by critics and fans as one of Lloyd’s best films, The Kid Brother blends comedy, romance, and drama in one action-packed film. Lloyd stars as the town sheriff’s bashful son who has the chance to prove himself when a medicine show comes into town. Andrew Peters provides live organ accompaniment to this 84 minute film.
