FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BRAHMS’ GERMAN REQUIEM PRESENTED BY CHOIR PARTNERSHIP - MARCH 10
LOUISVILLE, January 30 – The Concert Series of Second Presbyterian Church is honored to present its Sanctuary Choir combined with the Choir of St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church in Johannes Brahms’ monumental A German Requiem on Sunday, March 10, 2019 at 3 p.m. The concert will be presented in the church’s sanctuary at 3701 Old Brownsboro Road, near the intersection of Brownsboro Road and Chenoweth Lane in Indian Hills. Admission is free, and childcare is available.
Accompanied by full orchestra and conducted by Dr. Jim Rightmyer, Director of Music at St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church (www.stfrancisinthefields.org), the choirs will also be joined by soloists Christina Bouras Recktenwald, soprano, and Jim Rittenhouse, baritone.
A German Requiem, to Words of the Holy Scriptures, Op. 45 (German: Ein deutsches Requiem, nach Worten der heiligen Schrift) by Johannes Brahms was composed between 1865 and 1868. It comprises seven movements, which together last 65 to 80 minutes, making this work Brahms's longest composition. A German Requiem is sacred but non-liturgical, and unlike a long tradition of the Latin Requiem, it is a Requiem written in the German language. This performance will be presented in English to preserve the accessibility in the season of Lent.
A freewill offering will be taken on behalf of the Kilgore Samaritan Counseling Center, a joint ministry of Second Presbyterian and St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal. www.kilgorecounseling.org.

About Second Presbyterian’s Concert Series:
Second Presbyterian’s Concert Series was begun as a musical and artistic outreach of the church in 2010. It is the vision of our Concert Series to offer sacred and culturally relevant musical experiences in a variety of styles that touch the heart, stir the soul, and inspire audiences to connect their love of the arts to their relationship with God.

Kilgore expands its reach by partnering with The Healing Place

Kilgore partners with West End School
Kilgore Samaritan Counseling Center is excited to continue its partnership for the second year with the West End School (WES) to offer mental health professional services for their existing summer program. We provide assistance to the WES staff in the admission process by conducting family interviews, administering, scoring and interpreting Behavior Assessment Scales for Children (BASC) to parents, staff and students and provide clinical impressions to administration during the admission process. The end result is to increase the admission rate of those young men who have the emotional potential of succeeding in the program.
This continued support for the West End School is made possible by the Gheens Foundation and Good Samaritan Foundation, Inc. a ministry of the Kentucky Annual conference of the United Methodist Church.
WES West End School is a free, private, college preparatory, Pre-K through Eighth school for young men. Admission is open to boys entering Pre-K, Kindergarten, First Grade, Second Grade and Sixth Grade who are on free or reduced lunch, are capable of doing academic work at grade level or above, and who would benefit from a safe environment and high expectations.
Kilgore supports the clergy and their congregation, and area ministries.
We are pleased to assist the Eastern Area Ministries in offering support for their community, which covers the northeast portion of the county, by offering workshops and seminars relating to “What do you do when life throws you a curveball”, “How to build confidence and self-esteem”, and “How to stay positive in a negative situation”. Contact us at 502.327.4622 or Eastern Area Ministries at 502.426.2824 for future events.
