In the late 17th century, Marienkirche, a church in Lübeck, Germany started hosting concerts on Sunday evenings. These concerts were admission free and sponsored by local businesses and donors, and the title of the series was, literally, Evening Music – or Abendmusik in German.
The Immanuel United Church of Christ will continue in this tradition with their Immanuel Concert Series opener, “Noël Discant” on December 3. This free concert will feature soprano Elizabeth McConnaughey and tenor Edward Atkinson. Together, they will present 50 minutes of Christmas themed classical music, sung in their original languages with real-time supertitle translations.
Date and time: 4 p.m. December 3, 2017
Location: Immanuel United Church of Christ, 402 Prospect St. Indianpolis, IN 46225
