A Third Sunday concert at Church of the Advent for Valentine’s Day weekend

See also

Because the first Sunday of February was Groundhog’s Day, the third Sunday will fall in the middle of the month, rather than near the end. That means it will be part of Valentine’s Day weekend, a three-day span that will be so busy that I have already had to write one article to follow up on my effort to compile a comprehensive list of concert-going options. Now, due to the arrangement of this month, Paul Ellison, Director of Music at the Church of the Advent of Christ the King, has announced that the title of this month’s Third Sunday Series concert at the Church is When Love Meant Something: Medieval and Renaissance Love Songs for Trio.

The trio in that title will consist of Steven Anderson, Jonathon Hampton, and Clifton Massey. There will be fourteen songs in the program, all written for three voices. As necessary, the songs will be arranged for bass, tenor, and alto. The languages will be English, Latin, Italian, French, and German. (Love knows no linguistic barriers.)

Third Sunday Series concerts begin at 4 p.m. This one will take place on the Sunday of Valentine’s Day weekend, February 16. The Church of the Advent of Christ the King is located at 261 Fell Street, between Franklin Street and Gough Street. Admission is by donation with a suggested amount of $20. For those coming by car, there is a parking lot adjacent to the church. On this special occasion free hors d’oeuvres and champagne will be served following the concert in both the parish hall and the church’s beautiful walled garden.
