Track 1: 5pm Celebratory Concert at St. James’s Church
Dr. Carl Haywood
In celebration of Anglican musicians, Juneteenth, and Father’s Day, distinguished organist, composer and conductor Dr. Carl Haywood will honor these unique traditions in a beautiful kaleidoscope of choral and organ music. A choir of 24 voices will sing music celebrating the African-American tradition, and the program will be interspersed with organ works, including Dr. Haywood’s ever-popular “Improvisation on We Shall Overcome”, a perfect match for the mighty C.B. Fisk organ.

Track 2: 5:30 p.m. Celtic Service, Dinner, and Compline at St. Stephen’s Church
Each Sunday at 5:30pm, St. Stephen’s Church offers a service of Celtic Evensong with Holy Communion, drawn from the liturgical traditions of Iona and Northumbria, and the music at these services is contemplative, lively and haunting. The prayers are at once earthy, holy and inclusive. This service has been well received not only by St. Stephen’s parishioners, but includes worshipers from other churches in the area, as well as those with little or no religious background. Following the service a simple supper is offered (suggested donation of $7), followed by 8pm Compline. From the ancient monastic practice of ending the day in prayer and praise of God, this stunningly beautiful candlelit service features a small group of singers, “Sanctuary,” offering Gregorian chant and Renaissance polyphony.
