The Music Departments of St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church and Second Presbyterian Church are pleased to present a joint concert: The Creation of Franz Joseph Haydn on Thursday, November 10, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary of St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal. An oratorio based on accounts from Scripture and Milton’sParadise Lost, this 1798 masterpiece is an enduring example of the grand choral works of the Classical era. The Choirs of both churches are joined by soprano Emily Albrink Katz, tenor Steven Paul Spears, and bass-baritone Christopher Besch, and accompanied by members of the Louisville Orchestra, and Samuel Libra on harpsichord. Jim Rittenhouse, Director of Music at Second Presbyterian, conducts the performance.

Admission to the performance is free. A freewill offering will be taken to benefit the Kilgore Samaritan Counseling Center, a ministry supported by Second Presbyterian and St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal.
