Welcome to the 2018-2019 season of the Marvin Concert Series. We are excited about the upcoming season of great musical offerings before us, featuring music that spans the centuries and speaks to our souls and being. And what more beautiful place to witness such music than Marvin’s historic majestic sanctuary?
The Mission of the Marvin Concert Series is one of musical outreach to the community, an ecumenical time to welcome all to His presence. For centuries, the church has played an important role in the cultivation and promotion of music and artistic endeavors. God speaks to us through music.
As always, the music offerings are completely free of charge and are held in the sanctuary unless otherwise noted.

He composed it in Vienna in 1782 and 1783, when he was no longer a church musician of the Salzburg Cathedral. For the first time at Marvin, this great masterpiece will be brought to life by the Marvin Chancel Choir and orchestra. Soloists include sopranos Kara Story, Linda Long, Leslie Roberts, Bailey Bower and Dr. Cheryl Rogers; tenors Randy Cook and James Fish; and bass Mike Starr.
