Fine Arts/Concerts at Lord of Life

2013-14

 

Lord of Life's Fine Arts Concert Series is pleased to be celebrating fifteen seasons of providing monthly evening concerts to the church and community, always featuring quality soloists or ensembles. Local, national and international musicians have performed on the series since its founding. There are few concerts of this same excellence anywhere, and on most occasions we ask only for a door offering. For an extra blessing, take the opportunity to invite a neighbor or co-worker to enjoy the concert with you, and give the gift of music to someone else.

 

Volunteers are always appreciated and needed to help with facilities set up, hosting performers, and providing refreshments.   Click on the names below for a detailed description of the concert or performers. To add your name to the concert mailing list, please click here.
