Evensong for Artist in Residence Alonzo King
September 19, 2019
Join us for a special Evensong service to honor internationally-celebrated choreographer Alonzo King, chosen as Grace Cathedral’s Artist in Residence for 2019, when the cathedral’s annual theme is The Year of the Body. During the year, the cathedral community will consider a number of issues around the human body including the imperative for all human bodies to be treated with respect, the wonder of our corporeal selves and the spiritual elements of dance.
Evensong expands the form of daily Evening Prayer and includes the offerings of our cathedral Choir of Men and Boys. With elements of both Evening Prayer and Compline, the service of Evensong includes congregational hymns, choral chants and anthem, scripture readings and prayers. Some regard Evensong as one of the most beautiful and prayerful liturgies in the Anglican tradition, especially as celebrated in the cathedrals.
During the academic year, our boy choristers sing at Thursday Evensong along with the men of the cathedral choir. When school is not in session, Evensong is sung by the men of the choir.
Free and open to all
