Music to help the Homeless

9/11/16 Massed Choir at Our Saviour

On Sept. 11, 2016, over 50 musicians gathered at Our Saviour to honor those who died on Sept. 11, 2001. We sang the words of the Burial Service in the moving Requiem composed by Gabriel Fauré.  Over $800 was donated by those in attendance to help rebuild the St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox church near the scene of the Twin Towers, which was destroyed and is being rebuilt as a national shrine. Join us as we sing again to raise funds for The Haven Men’s Shelter in Rock Hill. Sat. Feb. 11, 4:30 p.m., at The Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, Rock Hill. Conductor will be Tim Moe, Music Director of Oakland Presbyterian Church, and the organ will be played by Greg Reynolds, Music Director at Neely’s Creek ARP.

While many are planning their Valentine’s Day dates, a community of interfaith singers and scripture readers will come together February 11 at 4:30 p.m. at the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour to show a different kind of love from the typical Valentine’s Day variety with a charity concert and prayer service benefitting The Haven Men’s Shelter in Rock Hill. The music ministry at Episcopal Church of Our Saviour hosts and organizes the February 11 event, welcoming singers and music lovers of all faiths to attend for a tax-deductible donation of any amount (or free for those who cannot afford to donate).
