Mon., March 30th, 20207:00pm – 8:00pm

Embrace our church’s tradition by joining Pastor Lose and Dr. Beverly Claflin to learn about Théodore Dubois’ masterpiece, The Seven Last Words of Christ. This Lenten tour de force has been an annual fixture at Mount Olivet for over seventy years, having first been performed here during Holy Week, 1948. Last year’s presentation featured an orchestra, soloists, and over two hundred Cathedral Choir members and alumni! Completion of the class will surely provide you with new insights when you attend this work’s upcoming presentation on Wednesday, April 8th. This two-night class will feature expert analysis and discussion, as well as provide interesting insights into the textual and musical aspects of this work. The first session will feature biblical exploration by Pastor Lose, whereas the second will feature a discussion of musical aspects and interpretation by Dr. Beverly Claflin. This class is open to everyone, as you do not need to be a scholar or musician to enjoy and learn.
