Soli Deo Gloria Concert Series

Soli Deo Gloria Music, FRIDAY, AUG. 23

FPC Fellowship Hall at 7:30 p.m.

“Musical Communication in Art and Nature”

Enjoy a captivating presentation by pianist Heather Lanners and ornithologist Tim O’Connell! This annotated concert will feature piano music inspired by birdsong, including music of Ravel, Rameau, Messiaen and Balakirev. Together, Lanners and O’Connell will illustrate how birds and people use music to communicate complex emotions, and how understanding the musical structure of birdsong can help people learn to identify the birds in their own backyards.

Admission is free (donations to SDG Music gratefully accepted) and a reception will follow.



Soli Deo Gloria”  Music is a new FPC music ministry outreach funded by the Joy Smith Endowment. It enables FPC to more intentionally share our beautiful pipe organ and grand piano with our community and congregation, featuring area musicians. “Soli Deo Gloria” (“Glory to God Alone”) is one of the five solae of the Protestant Reformation. It essentially means that everything we do is to glorify God, not ourselves. In writing “S.D.G.” on many of his manuscripts, sacred and secular alike, Johann Sebastian Bach gave testimony to his faith and dedicated his musical creations to God.
