Free Concert July 26 7:30pm
You will not want to miss this free and open concert at St. Mark's Lutheran Church on Saturday, July 26 at 7:30pm.
The concert, "Across the Channel: Musical Passions Baroque to Romantic," will include works by Handel, Scarlatti, Debussy, Liszt, and Britten, sung by soprano Tess Mattingly. Collaborative performers in the concert include Edie Hubert (piano) and Paul Florek (trumpet).
Ms. Mattingly is a Jacksonville native who is equally at home singing opera, art song, and sacred music. She has performed throughout the United States and in western Europe. Recent honors include the Coeur d'Alene Symphony Orchestra and Voices of Music Young Artist awards.
Ms. Hubert currently teaches at Jacksonville University. She has played with the orchestra at previous Bach Vespers services and has appeared with the San Marco Chamber Music Society.
Mr. Florek made his symphonic solo debut at the age of fifteen and has gone on to perform with numerous ensembles such as the Elmhurst Symphony, Chesterfield Symphony, Fort Worth Symphony, Texas Camerata, and the Lincoln Chamber Orchestra.
The concert is free and open to the public. Donations are encouraged and will be taken to benefit St. Mark's Bach Vespers program.
Bach Vespers has a twenty year history at St. Mark's and this fall's cantata will be sung as part of St. Mark's 75th anniversary celebration. St. Mark's Lutheran Church is located at 3976 Hendricks Avenue in the San Marco/Miramar neighborhoods of south Jacksonville.
