Paul Gerhardt Hymn Festival — Sunday August 2
American Guild of Organists (AGO) Charlotte Chapter — Summer Recital
Please join us on Sunday, August 2 at 7:00 PM for an organ recital at Ascension Lutheran Church. The format of this recital will be a hymn festival, with spoken reflections, organ voluntaries, and congregational singing of hymns by Paul Gerhardt.
Paul Gerhardt (1607-1676) was a German poet and pastor who composed 139 hymns and poems, all of them allowing the Gospel to predominate as the Gospel truth is applied to real burdens and struggles in daily life. His hymns, while centuries old, are still relevant and purposeful in the lives of Christians today.
Admission to the recital is free. A freewill offering will be received to support the AGO Stigall scholarship fund. For more information about the Charlotte Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, please visit their website.
