150 Years of Louis Vierne, Part 1 [RESCHEDULED]
Time & Location

About the event
In protest of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless other black citizens at the hands of police, tonight’s virtual organ concert is being postponed. I invite you to use this time instead to learn about and reflect on how we can each do our part to fight against racism and make the world a more just and safe place for everyone.
To quote Louis Vierne, the composer whose music we would have been celebrating tonight, “It would be absurd to try to impede progress by allowing ones self to be caught up in old habits, in a routine... I understand quite well that men must unite in self defense, for the protection of their own interests, and that they must make use of that power to bring justice and better harmony.”
May we not get caught up in old, insidious habits but make use of our power, both collective and individual, to bring justice and better harmony to our communities.
The concert is rescheduled for this Friday, June 5th, at 7:00pm.
This concert, hosted by St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Marblehead, Mass., is given in part to support the Greater Boston Food Bank and their efforts to assist our neighbors who are struggling to afford food during this uncertain time. A suggested donation of $10 per person is asked, though any amount is welcomed and appreciated. Please make checks payable to St. Michael's Church, with GBFB in the memo. Or pay online through paypal:
