PLYMOUTH MUSIC SERIES 2015-16

A Season of Concerts that Enrich and Inspire

Plymouth Congregational Church Music Series is proud to present the 2015-16 season of concerts!

Plymouth Music Series concerts and affiliated events are open to the public as special opportunities for faith enrichment and cultural education.  Music Series events are free and open to the public.  Some affiliated events are ticketed, but members of Plymouth Church and Music Series Donors are afforded deep discounts to these affiliated events.

The generous support of donors helps to offset the cost of Music Series programming, which freewill offerings cannot cover.  If you are interested in providing financial support for these programs, please send us your gift with a completed donor form so we might list your name or dedication in our concert programs.

Though every Plymouth Music Series concert is free and open to the public, we do receive freewill offerings. Programs are suitable for all ages, last about 75 minutes and are followed by a nice reception in the Folsom Room adjacent to the Sanctuary.  Note these concerts in your calendars today!

Concerts:

Sunday, October 11, 2015 – 2:00 p.m.

Switchback Celtic Duo presents “The Hibernian Mass”

We are excited to welcome the group Switchback, a Celtic Duo that has been featured on PBS.  The group features Brian FitzGerald (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Martin McCormack (vocals, bass guitar) and they join forces with the voices of Heartland Sings to present “The Hiberian Mass.”  This work was written by Brian and Martin, created to play upon the words Hibernia and Hibernate. With the coming of Saint Patrick to the tribes of Ireland, the people awake from their winter of not knowing Christ and become one with the Lord.  In addition to the Switchback Duo, we have the singers of Heartland and other guest instrumentals from the region to bring you a dynamic spiritual experience in the Celtic style.
