The Faith Concert Series is a ministry of Faith Presbyterian Church, which seeks to:
- Give Glory to God through musical excellence. Music is given to praise God for his faithfulness in redeeming his people (Psalm 71:22-23). Our artists combine God-given talents with years of study, practice, and refinement to proclaim Christ's excellence through heavenly art.
- Reach our community with diverse, professional-caliber concerts, offered always with free-admission. The Faith Concert Series hosts Carnegie-Hall quality musicians and is committed to making the gift of music available to our community at no charge.
- Educate and Edify our audiences. The musical selections of the Faith Concert Series run the gamut of the instrument on display, covering differing musical genres & periods, and always including sacred selections with a gospel emphasis. Artists' talking points provide historical context, explain musical technique, or offer personal testimony alongside the music.

The Gospel According to Bach, Chamber Ensemble
4PM - FREE
Bach Chamber Ensemble
The combination of sublime music and biblical text of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion was the inspiration to adapt this sacred oratorio to a shorter, more audience-friendly work for trombone, strings,keyboard and narrator. In his original creation, Bach interprets God’s inerrant Word through his gift of music. It is Bach’s good news in response to God’s good news. In The Gospel According to Bach the composer’s intent, to glorify God through his music, is not altered; only the instrumentation has been changed. The original poetry, portions of scripture chorales, arias and recitatives remain the same.
7PM - FREE
