Helman Concert Series

2017-2018 Concert Season Information


Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 7:00PM - Anderson Jazz Trio *FREE See flyer
Peter and Will Anderson are one of the most extraordinary set of brothers performing music today. Known for their unique renditions of classic jazz songs and innovative original music, they hail from Washington, DC, but moved to New York City to attend Juilliard. Peter and Will have performed with the many jazz bands and orchestras, and are featured on the 2014 Grammy Winning Soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire with Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks. The Washington Post called their music,  “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz.” Flier for this event
See what they're all about in this video on youtube.

      This is St. Michael's Church pre-lenten mission speaker/musical series. These 3 talks (with music) will be presented by Dan Schutte to renew your spirit and prepare you to be new in Christ this Lent and Easter season. We hosted Dan 2 years ago and loved his story-telling and genuine heart for music. He is acclaimed for his wonderful liturgical music that the church has been praying and singing for over 40 years! We are so thankful for his participation in artful creation of music and prayer and we are so happy he will be with us for 3 nights leading up to Ash Wednesday! The first night we will begin at 7:15pm (there will be a light supper after the 5:30pm Mass) and the following two nights we will begin right at 7:00pm. We are hoping to have morning sessions as well (for those who cannot make it in the evening).
