Cape Ann Winds Concert, September 8, Annisquam Village Church


The Annisquam Village Church continues its concert series on Sunday afternoon, September 8 at 4 PM with a benefit performance by the Concert Winds Trio. Seasoned players with a penchant for light-hearted chamber music --Jean Antrim, Flute; David Benjamin, Clarinet; and Priscilla Walter, Piano will feature Franz Danzi's trio “Sinfonia Concertante.” Also on the program are duos and solos of Brahms, Delibes, Noda, and even Leroy Anderson (special student guest flautist Sophia Hogan-Lopez joins the trio in Anderson’s “Penny Whistle Song”).

The concert is a benefit for the newly refurbished Village Church at the head of Lobster Cove. Widely known for its beauty and resonant acoustics, this historic building is an ideal venue for chamber music and has attracted many world-class musicians to perform.

A reception in the Cove Room, which has also undergone renovations, follows the concert.

A Service of Worship with The Vedanta Society of Providence, RI

at the Annisquam Village Church, 820 Washington St. Gloucester, MA 
August 25, 2019 at 10:00 AM

The Annisquam Village Church welcomes the Vedanta Society of Providence, R.I as we join our communities in a festive service of worship on August 25, 2019 at 10:00 am. A luncheon will follow.
Christians and Hindus will sing each other's songs, pray together, and hear inspiring words from the writings Swami Vivekananda and from Pravrajika Shuddhatmaprana, a nun from the Vivekananda Retreat, Ridgely Manor, NY.
The Village Church has a connection with Swami Vivekananda since 1893 when he first spoke from the church's pulpit  just before he made history at the first meeting of the World Parliament of Religions in Chicago 
Hindu pilgrims still come to Annisquam to visit sites where the revered Swami visited. The Village Church has been a stop on the pilgrimage. We are very excited to be hosting this event which deepens the relationship between our two worshiping communities. All are welcome!
