The Beauty of St. Clement Church Chicago
St. Clement is a special community, warm and welcoming, in Lincoln Park. I've been a cantor there since 2008 and I can easily say it's a pleasure to sing in that space. Aside from the people that make up the community and the beauty of the church itself, the acoustics at St. Clement are ideal for this kind of music. Many amazing choral groups have sung at St. Clement and it's an honor to be on that list. I think this concert will offer something special for everyone in a contemplative, sacred space. We look forward to seeing you on February 18.
The St. Clement website has an amazing page with a wealth of information (and beautiful photos!) about the Art and Architecture of the building. Here's a a quick interesting tidbit - the original artist for the interior design of the church was born in Russia in 1888. His name was Reverend Gleb Evgeniovitch Werchovsky. Try saying that 5 times fast!

As a member of The Marion Consort and a regular cantor at St. Clement, to say I am excited for this concert is an understatement. If you are reading this post, you probably already know the beauty of early music, The Marion Consort and how our voices come together as a group. If not, what are you waiting for? Come hear us!
