We are proud of a fantastic music program at Beacon. Under the guidance of Director of Music Ministry, Misa Iwama, world class music and musicians are brought to you. With our Flentrop Organ, two baroque violins and wide host of specialists – flutists, violists and voice artists – we revel in what music awakens in us. We also join our voices together in singing hymns of gratitude, quiet reflection, and honoring the world’s religions.
In the tradition of bringing music lovers to Beacon and its acoustically vibrant Sanctuary, Afternoon Music is an independent non-profit concert series that presents two classical music recitals and one jazz concert by a well-known instrumentalist or singer each season. Eminent jazz pianist Renee Rosnes kicks off the 2019-2020 season at 4 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 27. Highly acclaimed tenor Rufus Müller and pianist Kayo Iwama follow on January 26. And we will host the return of the Philadelphia-based chamber music group Elysian Camerata on April 19.
Subscribe to all three concerts, or buy the very reasonably priced tickets individually or at the door. Find more information here: Afternoon Music brochure
Our Congregational Choir is a great asset to our worship services. Members rehearse weekly on Thursday nights and sing at services approximately once every month. Under the direction of the current music director, the Choir performs a wide variety of musical styles.
