CONCERT SERIES

Music is an important part of our life together as Lutheran Christians; it is also a gift that we share with our wider community.  St. Paul-Reformation takes its job a patron of the arts seriously, and we schedule several concerts throughout the year that are free and open to the public.  The making of music and art in our community is important, and we invite to join us for these upcoming events:

  • VESPERS FOR THE REFORMATION

    Sunday, OCTOBER 28, 5:00 p.m.

    2018 marks 501 years since the Lutheran Reformation.  Join us as we observe this day with works from sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by Franz Tunder, Michael Praetorius, J. S. Bach, and organ works from the period.  German goodies (and beer!) follow the liturgy.  Please note: incense will be used.

  • Armistice Day Vespers

    SUNDAY, November 11, 5:00 p.m.

    2018 marks a century since the close of World War I, the "Great War" that claimed the lives of millions.  We gather to mark this anniversary with Bishop Patricia Lull of the St. Paul Area Synod as well as hearing choral works related to war and peace.  Music joins reflections from soldiers, families, and historians of the era.


    In addition, a pre-liturgy lecture will begin at 4:00 p.m. led by Timothy McDonald, a scholar form the University of Minnesota; this will be a brief primer on the conflict, and a reminder of the parties involved, issues at stake, and why the conflict happened.  A reception follows.
