Wonderful music, Lenten reflection, and interfaith fellowship are all hallmarks of the Phyllis A. Lange-Connelly Memorial Lenten Recital series. Eleven area churches sponsor these recitals.

Everyone is invited to listen, reflect, and enjoy music presented by outstanding musicians. This is the nineteenth year for the series which has been attended by over 1500 people annually.

Thursday lunch hour concerts begin at 12:10 p.m. and Sunday programs begin at 3 p.m.

All the concerts are followed by a time of fellowship and a chance to meet the musicians. Admission is free -- donations are accepted to help defray costs.
