Not just another church concert

It’s pretty safe to say that All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena isn’t like every other congregation.  With a history reaching back more than thirteen decades and a wildly devoted following, the church’s active social justice culture and gorgeous architecture tend to land it in the news almost as much as it is featured in films and television.  All Saints’ many educational programs and community outreach result in one of the busiest church campuses around, and their music program has distinguished itself for many years as a haven for excellent musicianship and repertoire innovation.

This Sunday, June 5th, the church’s spring concert showcases the congregations two resident adult choirs, soloists, their magnificent 1962 Schlicker organ, and a mixed program of choral gems, culled primarily from more recent eras.  The program includes works by Vaughan Williams, Hogan, Mathias and Pinkham; contemporary choralisti Ola Gjelo, Bruce Neswick and Gwyneth Walker; as well as SoCal composers David Montoya and James Hopkins.  Soloists are sopranos Zanaida Robles and Elizabeth Tatum, and tenor Daniel Ramon, and the concert will be led by music director James Walker, with Weicheng Zhao manning the organ.  You’ll see why this is one of the church music programs that sets the standard for sacred music, far beyond the Pasadena borders.
