Choral, Folk Concert Fosters Dialogue for Unity

Three students in the music department of Trinity Lutheran College will offer a concert May 17 to benefit the development of the Same Love Garden at All Pilgrims Christian Church. The 7 PM concert will feature choral and folk music presented by Emily Hipp Johnston, Alex Johnston and Paul Georgeson, students of All Pilgrims’ Minister of Music Stephen Marshall Ward, who is also a professor at Trinity Lutheran. The concert is offered as part of the students’ degree fulfillment.

The program will feature original folk music by Alex Johnston, and performances by the All Pilgrims choir, the Trinity Lutheran College Concert Choir and reSound, a Northwest Chamber Ensemble.

The students have designed the concert as both a concert and conversation for Christian unity. It will feature homilies by Nick Loyd, Pastor at Pathways Church in Mill Creek; Elizabeth Rawlings, Campus Pastor for the University of Washington Lutheran Campus Ministries; and Dr. Bruce Grigsby, Professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity Lutheran College.

The Concert is sponsored by the Music Department of Trinity Lutheran College and the Institute for Social Change through the Arts. Proceeds will benefit the development of the Same Love Garden, All Pilgrims’ plan for redevelopment of its green space on Broadway. Donations of any size are welcome at the door.
