Trinity’s October music features instrumental solos commemorating Hispanic Heritage Month and vocal music by Bach and Mendelssohn celebrating the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. The October 8 anthem God Is Here presents Glenn Wonacott’s thoughtful text:
God is here, reaching out to all who gather;
God is here, listening to the prayers of all.
God is here, giving grace where hearts are wounded;
God is here, lifting lives after a fall.
God is here, calling us to find our passion;
God is here, teaching us to find ourselves.
Reaching, listening, giving grace—lifting lives to see God’s face.
God is here, showing why we all are here, for God is here.
Trinity’s adult singers will take part with musicians from seven other local houses of worship in “All Good Gifts: an Interfaith Service Fair and Concert” on October 29; the service fair representing local charitable institutions and benefitting Share of McLean will start at 6 p.m., and the one-hour concert will follow at 7 p.m. In addition to various vocal and instrumental solos, the concert’s massed choir will sing All Good Gifts from the 1971 musical Godspell, the folk hymn How Can I Keep from Singing, and the inspirational 2003 song You Raise Me Up. These events are free to the public and will take place at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Church on 2034 Great Falls Street, McLean.
