Calvary Episcopal Church’s mission is to make God’s love visible in downtown Memphis. The Friends of Music ministry seeks to make it visible by enhancing the sacred music of Calvary’s liturgies, while also opening the doors of Calvary to the larger community of the Mid-South for a variety of concert opportunities. If you would like to become a Friend of Music, please contact Organist-Choirmaster Kristin Lensch, or click the link below. You may also contact one of the committee members: Desi Franklin, chair, David Armbruster, Charles Billings, Kell Christie, Lynda Gayle Deacon, John Palmer, and Charles Shipp.
This year, Friends of Music at Calvary is delighted to present internationally recognized performers, including GRAMMY award-winning Chanticleer, violinist Gregory Maytan, organist Ken Cowan, and the STAX Music Academy.
Gregory Maytan's September 23, 2016 performance included a new interpretation of Bach's Chaconne in D minor. Three singers assist and sing "hidden" chorales disovered by German musicologist, Helga Thoene. See the video and read more about it.
Ye olde tradition of Calvary’s popular madrigal dinner, led by the Calvary Choir, returns on Epiphany this year—a perfect way to conclude the Twelve Days of Christmas. A Friends of Music fundraiser, the tickets are $50. Buy your tickets today!
