At 3pm on Sunday 29th October, St John’s Lutheran Church at Corinda will host a Reformation Sunday Concert. Funds raised from entry donations will go to Australian Lutheran World Service.
The eclectic musical offering will include J.S. Bach’s delightful Cantata BWV 61 “Nun komm, der Heiden Heiland”, sung by the St Peters Church Choir with soloists Brianna Rankine (soprano) and Pieter van der Have (tenor).
Gregory Mayer is the accompanist, and he will open the concert with the sparkling organ solo Praeludium in C by Dieterich Buxtehude, a Danish-born composer much admired by Bach.
Soloists Madeleine Stephens (soprano), Amy Cooper (mezzo) and Marco Lindner (bass) feature in the second half of the event. The popular choral selections include ‘Pie Jesu’ from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Requiem, the Grammy Award-winning ‘Baba Yetu’ (theme from Civilization IV), along with Gospel numbers and contemporary sacred choral arrangements.
Choir director Tricia Elgar said the Reformation Sunday Concert at St John’s was a chance for music-lovers from all over Brisbane and beyond to come together to celebrate this important day in the church’s calendar. Concert goers are invited to stay for a complimentary ‘Longest Lutheran Afternoon Tea’ following the performance.
