“Bring the Music On!” Fundraising Concert
October 20, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$100
YOU ARE INVITED TO…
“Bring the Music On!” Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018, 6-8:30 p.m. at the Wilton Congregational Church. Join us for a marvelous concert and fundraiser to benefit sound and visual modernizations and preservations at the Church. Childcare will be provided.
“Bring the Music On!” will include a reception at 6 p.m. in Pilgrim Hall and a piano concert at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary, given by our Director of Music Ministries, Eugene Sirotkine, internationally acclaimed pianist and conductor, who will perform selections from the piano repertoire of Chopin, Rachmaninov, Liszt, Glinka, and a delightful “rag” by J. P. Johnson. In addition, there will be a vocal performance by Rev. Dr. Anne Coffman.
The Church is a historical beacon in the community ~ an institution in the Town of Wilton. We want to be a good steward of our church, not only the brick and mortar, but also what happens inside. In today’s world, the way you hear and see things is so important to your experience; we want everyone to be able to share the Message, the Music, the Fellowship, and the Steeple Chimes.
First, we need to replace the current aging carillon so that the beautiful steeple chimes that we all love will live on! Next, we are designing a modern integrated sound and visual system throughout the Church or wherever you are, through live, online streaming of all events. The new system will have leading-edge audio/video components, completely integrated by wireless technology. Installed, it will fit with the historical aesthetic and history of the Church. Finally, there will be recording capability and Assistive Listening Devices.
“Bring the Music On!” is just one of the funding plans for this project and is open to all in the community. Seating is limited. Tickets at $100 each are 100% tax deductible, and may be purchased either online with your credit card or by check in the Church office 203.762.5591.
This will be a fun evening for a good cause. We hope you can attend or graciously support this project with a Donation. Thank you!
