November 17 Talented opera singer Marie Engle will give a 3 p.m. recital in the sanctuary. This free Sunday recital, open to the public, will mark the third one given by Marie in our church, with her previous two performances being very well-attended and well-received. Marie recently received her Master’s Degree from Juilliard School of Music in New York City, where she remains to do free-lance vocal work and continue her studies. Marie will be accompanied on piano by Mary Castello, the two of them having performed in communities around the United States and Canada during the past few years. Ms. Castello has a Master’s Degree from McGill Conservatory in Montreal, has served as young artist at the Vancouver Opera, and is currently on staff at Acadia College in Nova Scotia.
November 23 The church will be featured on the Auburn Lion’s Club annual “Christmas Stroll,” a day-long Saturday event that offers the public a chance to see our beautifully decorated sanctuary. The church is also offering a soup luncheon and a baked goods sale from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
December 7 A New York-based jazz trio will perform in our holiday-decorated sanctuary at 7 p.m. Saturday, with the public invited to this free event. Trio members include award-winning pianist and composer Tuomo Uusitalo, bassist and composer Jonathan Gardner, and musician and educator Chris Parker on drums.
