Concerts and Recitals
Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 7:30PM
The Robert T Anderson Recital Series of the Dallas Chapter of the American Guild of Organists presents:
With his appointment as Organist of the Royal Chapel at the Palace of Versailles, Jean-Baptiste Robin was secured a place in a long line of royal organists (Couperin, Marchand, and Daquin) as “court musician” whose playing mirrors and matches the opulence of that world-renowned building. Widely regarded as one of the most accomplished French organists and composers of his generation, Mr. Robin also serves as Professor of Organ at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Regional in Versailles. He is represented in North America exclusively by Phillip Truckenbrod Concert Artists, LLC.

Christ the King Singers maintain an extensive classic choral repertoire from all periods of music. They offer music at the Sunday 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. Masses, occasional 12:30 p.m. Masses, and Feast Days. This 24-28-voice auditioned choir is comprised of music professionals and student voice majors from UNT and SMU.
The Vigil Schola sings for the 5:30 p.m. Vigil Mass three Saturdays a month. Volunteers are invited to audition to join the core of professional singers. Rehearsals precede masses at 4:30 p.m. Contact Thomas Pavlechko to schedule an audition if you are interested in singing. email@example.com.
Schola IV-VIII is a one-voice-per-part ensemble numbering the voice parts in the chosen repertoire. They sing 1-3 times a month for the 12:30 p.m. Sunday Mass.
The Southern Belles have been playing handbells together for over 15 years. This mostly-women ensemble invites all those interested in ringing to join them, including men! They offer their music monthly at 11:00 a.m. Sunday Masses. Weekly rehearsals are on Wednesday afternoons, 2:30-3:15. Reading music is a plus but not a strict requirement. Contact Monica Awbrey if you are interested in ringing. firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Music Ministry for Children and Youth, which will be a collaborative program between church and school, is in the process of a complete re-design and re-build. The new program will bring back some aspects of Christ the King’s music history while building on current and potential strengths. Stay tuned!
