Shadyside Presbyterian Church’s Music Ministry offers a Choral Evensong service on Sunday, November 4, at 4:00 p.m.
Evensong is an evening prayer liturgy with roots in the Anglican tradition. Led by the Chancel Choir, the reflective Evensong service on November 4 will include a homily preached by the Reverend James W. Tinnemeyer, Jr., and choral music by Richard Ayleward, Peter Hallock, Kenneth Leighton, and Sir David Willcocks. This prayerful, music-filled setting will bring a peaceful, calm close to the day.
Nursery care will be provided during the service. Worship is free and open to the public; no tickets are necessary to attend. For details about Choral Evensong, or for information about the church’s Music in a Great Space concert series, call 412.682.4300, or visit www.shadysidepres.org.
Shadyside Presbyterian Church is centrally located in the heart of Pittsburgh’s university district, just a few blocks away from the campuses of the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University. The church is situated on the corner of Amberson Avenue and Westminster Place, only one block off Fifth Avenue. The church’s 1994 Reuter Organ (opus 2175), capable of playing the full range of organ literature, accompanies the choir and leads the congregation in worship. As an American Classic instrument, it incorporates the German, French, Italian, and English schools of organ building to create an instrument of enormous versatility. The 105-rank organ helps to uphold the highest standards of sacred music and carries that tradition vibrantly into the twenty-first century.
