The next concert in the 2019-2020 Musical Arts Concert Series at St. Peter’s will feature local flute player Jocelyn Crosby and accompanist Doug Wimer on Saturday, September 14, 2019, at 7pm.

Jocelyn Crosby, a flute and piccolo soloist and freelance artist in the Lancaster area, and Doug Wimer, organist and choir master at St. Stephen Reformed Church, New Holland, PA, and president of Buch Organ Company in Ephrata, PA, will present a varied concert program entitled “Peace and Plenty.” They plan to showcase many classical pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries, including “In the Shadow of Thy Wing” by Alisa Bair, which is based on Psalm 63, and “Eliza’s Aria” from the ballet Wild Swans by Elena Kats-Chernin.  Come to this concert to enjoy a reflective evening in the midst of the start of the school year.

This concert is free and open to the public. A freewill offering is collected during intermission. Ten percent of the free-will offering will go to the rebuilding of Tanzania’s Busoka Lutheran Church, which was destroyed by an earthquake. Busoka is a companion congregation of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Neffsville. For further information, individuals may contact the church office during business hours at 717-569-9211 or visit our concert series webpage. Connect with us on Facebook and share the event with your friends.

The next event in the series will be held October 19 at 7pm and will feature the Pennsylvania Flute Choir. Come to this concert to experience a variety of instrument shapes and sizes with the promise of opening your eyes to the tonal possibilities of the flute!
