Below is the Month of Sundays for January. Back to abnormal, you might say, as WFW continues his "year of preaching musically." While mostly classical stuff, (and great classical stuff by the way!), one Sunday will be devoted to the legacy of African American spiritual song. On January 5, we start 2020 with Beethoven, as this is the 250th Anniversary of his birth. Juan Sebastian Avendaño, a student at WMU, will be playing the Waldstein Piano Sonata, perhaps the most Beethovenian of them all, and WFW will comment on its remarkable power and inspiration. Then we will pay homage to the African American spiritual tradition with the help of our Choir on January 12. The final two Sundays, (1/19 and 1/26), will feature the Perugino Quartet first doing some tangos, (yes tangos!), from three different Composers and then the Emperor Quartet by Josef Haydn. Four good reasons to come to church by themselves.
“Whose Music Is It Anyhow?” - Rev. Fred Wooden speaking - WFW will speak on this as the Perugino String Quartet returns to play Haydn's Emperor, whose middle movement is both sublime and troubling. Some thoughts on what happens when music is abused.
