Find relief from the rush at free concerts offering music of the season at Peace Lutheran Church in Grass Valley.
The free mini-concerts start at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays in December and last for 30 minutes. No offering will be taken; these concerts have been a gift from Peace to the community for more than two decades. Following each concert, the event will transition to Holden Evening Prayer, a prayer service weaving song, chant, prayer and Bible readings. All are welcome at both presentations.
Here’s the mini-concert line-up:
• Dec. 5: Colla Voce Youth Chorus.
• Dec. 12: Bells of Peace handbell choir; plus, alto soloist Judy Kenney will sing “Sweet Little Jesus Boy” – a ballad made famous by Mahalia Jackson.
• Dec. 19: Walt Strony, an organist at Peace, and Thomas Greathouse, musical director at Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Grass Valley, will perform.
Peace Lutheran Church is located at 828 W. Main St.
