Mon Jun 18 – Thu Jun 21, 2018 2:30pm – 12:00pm

Conference | Full of Your Glory: Liturgy, Cosmos, Creation

Sponsored by: Yale Institute of Sacred Music

The conference will explore ideas of creation and cosmos embedded in the worship life of the church at a time of unprecedented attention to ecological and cosmological concerns. Conference speakers will highlight some of the rich traditions of the past (ritual, visual, and musical, among others) and also address contemporary concerns.  The broader aim of the conference is to offer the resources of the liturgical tradition—and its particular insights—to the ongoing conversations around ecology and cosmology. It will become clear that liturgy has always been about more than human beings at worship: specific understandings of creation and the cosmos are in fact at the heart of all Christian worship.

Conference schedule and speakers list forthcoming.

Registration required. See event website for more details.

Liturgy Symposium Series | Molly Lester

Sponsored by: Yale Institute of Sacred Music

The Scales of Orthodoxy: Music, Sacraments, and the Mass in Seventh-Century Iberia

Molly Lester studies late antique and early medieval Europe, with a focus on the history of Christianity. Lester is interested in debates about religious orthodoxy, Christian interpretations of the relationship between religious practice and belief, and early medieval compilation and implementation of canon law. Her dissertation, “The Word as Lived: The Practice of Orthodoxy in Visigothic Iberia, 540-700,” traces attempts to define and actualize Christian orthodoxy throughout the shifting religious landscape of sixth- and seventh-century Visigothic Iberia. Using diverse sources such as church councils, theological and pastoral texts, and liturgy, she explores Visigothic Christian anxieties about worship and moral living, first in the face of rival ‘heretical’ groups and later in debates over divergent practice within the ‘orthodox’ community. Emphasizing that practice was regarded as a dynamic part of being a religious individual, she considers how people attempted to use religious practice to organize and govern their communities according to their ideas of religious orthodoxy.

Harlem Gospel Choir

Sponsored by: Ives Concert Park

As part of the Newtown Savings Bank Fine Arts & Family Series, Ives Concert Park will present the world-famous Harlem Gospel Choir at 7 p.m. in the Veronica Hagman Concert Hall in the Visual and Performing Arts Center on the Western Connecticut State University Westside campus.
Performing contemporary gospel with a touch of jazz and blues, the World Famous Harlem Gospel Choir is synonymous with power vocals, glorious sound and infectious energy. For over two decades they have been America’s premier gospel choir and have toured the globe thrilling audiences with the inspirational power of black gospel music.
Deeply routed in the history of the African-American slave trade, black gospel music can be traced back to the 1700s when African slaves brought their unique African musical heritage to America and combined it with their new faith – Christianity. Out of the hardship and the trials of slavery, this unique musical tradition came to be, and forever changed music as we know it. Blues, Soul and Rock-and-Roll… they all have origins in black gospel music. Harlem Gospel Choir presents modern gospel classics as performed in the black churches of Harlem today.
Harlem Gospel Choir have performed alongside superstars such as Bono, Diana Ross, The Gorillaz, Andre Rieu, Damon Albarn, Pharrell Williams and most recently with JamieXX, Raury, KBS Korean Traditional Music Orchestra and Lang Lang, Lou Gramm of Foreigner, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, Sia, Yolanda Adams and The 1975. They have performed for three Presidents (President Obama, President Carter and President Nelson Mandala), Two Popes (Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI), Ban Ki-Moon and the UN General Assembly. They have recorded with Keith Richards, The Chieftans and Trace Adkins among others.
Harlem Gospel Choir embodies the spirit of American Gospel. Every concert is infectiously
Enthusiastic; a roller coaster ride of singing and dancing; a gospel celebration! The choirs rich harmonies & dynamic sound are “UNFETTERED & JOYOUS”. Their harmonious songs of love, hope and inspiration will touch the depths of your soul, lift your spirit and take your breath away! Get ready to tap your feet, clap your hands and even dance on stage to their high-energy, joyous and exuberant performance!

Advance tickets $25, at the door $30. For tickets go to www.ivesconcertpark.com or call 203-837-8732.
