Event Details

First Christian Church is presenting “The Noble Art,” music to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, performed by Parish House Baroque. The program is centered around composers who were deeply affected by the Reformation: J.S. Bach, Telemann, Handel and Schmelzer, who speak through their music of their faith and hope. A free will offering will be taken. 

Parish House Baroque, Colorado Springs’ early music ensemble, specializes in the brilliance and diversity of music from the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries through historically informed performances.  Drawing on varied sources of performance practice in interpretation and ornamentation of the renaissance and baroque, Parish House strives to expand the community of people who love early music and to foster the next generation of audiences for early music through outreach and dialogue. Consisting of Elisa Wicks, baroque violin; Jennifer Carpenter, recorders; Pam Chaddon, baroque cello and viola da gamba; and Eric Wicks, harpsichord & organ, Parish House has developed a reputation for highly expressive performances and compelling programming. Parish House is currently ensemble-in-residence at First Lutheran Church, Colorado Springs, CO. For more info on the ensemble, please visit parishhousebaroque.org.

As Martin Luther himself said, “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.”
