In His Care

In His Care, An Ars Sacra Concert

Join us this Saturday to hear six centuries of sacred choral music. From Renaissance Tallis to contemporary Betinis, the drama of Rachmaninoff to the Latin rhythms of Duménigo, the program explores mystery, majesty, and comfort.

We’ll be performing in the beautiful sanctuary of Old St. Joseph’s Church at 8:00 PM. Willings Alley is tucked away between Walnut and Locust Streets (running parallel to them), between 3rd and 4th Streets in the heart of Old City.
