Advent Vespers coming December 7

The Choir of The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia will lead the annual Advent Vespers on Sunday, December 7, at 7:30 pm at Grace Epiphany Episcopal Church in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia, near the seminary campus.

All are invited to this service of sung Evening Prayer as we mark this season of anticipation and expectation with the reminder that “God will reign in peace forever” (#256, Evangelical Lutheran Worship). Under the direction of Michael Krentz and John Weit, the choir will sing selections by William Billings, Andre Thomas and Magnificat by Giacomo Puccini (1712-1781, direct ancestor to the celebrated opera composer), and lead hymns and songs from many times and places.

Grace Epiphany Church is located at 224 East Gowen Avenue, Philadelphia, PA. For more information, visit the seminary Web site,
