Music in Lent: Schroeder and Scott perform at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Camden


St. Thomas' Episcopal Church is again offering Noon Music in Lent, a free program of music in its church followed by a simple lunch of soup and bread in the Parish Hall. All are cordially invited. Professional musicians offer a half hour program on six successive Fridays through April 21. Each program opens with a short noonday prayer.

On March 24, Suzanne Scott and Jane Schroeder will play Bach's Sheep May Safely Graze and Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, arranged for piano and organ by E. Power Biggs. Both Scott and Schroeder, professional church musicians, are delighted at how wonderful these two pieces sound, and say they are fun to play, too

Scott will play Don Hustad's piano arrangements of the traditional American melody, God Is My Strong Salvation and traditional spiritual Talk About A Soul. Schroeder will play Robert A. Hobby's organ solo based on I am a Poor Wayfaring Stranger. They finish the program with Mozart's Sonate No. 1 in D Major, an original composition for piano, four hands.

St. Thomas Church is located at 33 Chestnut Street in downtown Camden. A handicap-accessible entrance with adjacent parking is located around the corner on Wood Street.
