Trinity Advent Organ Series Features Church Pipe Organ

Concert-goers can explore the new liturgical year in a series of three afternoon performances illustrating the diverse tonal landscape of Trinity Episcopal Church’s four-manual pipe organ. Thomas Joyce, Trinity’s minister of keyboard music, will present the 75-minute programs, each featuring a guest musician.

The performances are at 3:30 p.m. Dec. 4, 11 and 18 at the church, 1500 State St., Santa Barbara.

Running the gamut of Western music history, the audience will hear organ literature that is very old, quite new, and composed somewhere in the middle.

Joyce will conclude the series with the concert premiere of his own newly composed Psalm 24 for solo organ, “Lift up your heads, O ye gates.”

Advent and its preparation for Christmas will be intended as a meditative journey through the sacred mysteries of the season.

Suggested donation is $10 for adults/$5 for children and youth. Free chocolate Advent calendars will be available at the console following each program for children who'd like to listen to the concerts.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
