Composition Will Be Given Premier May 22
The composition “Pentecost” will be given its premier on Sunday, May 22, at 10:30 a.m. worship. The choral anthem was composed by Nicholas Schmelter in April 2011. It is scored for chorus, soloist, and piano accompaniment. First Congregational Church and the Chancel Choir warmly welcome friend Peggy Knutson, who will perform the solo portions of the anthem. Earlier in 2011, member and poet Marion Frahm Tincknell generously penned the composition’s text, which is fitting for Eastertide, the Pentecost season, or celebrations of music, the fine arts, and creativity.
