SALISBURY — Starting March 9, the public is invited to enjoy a “Midweek Meditation” on Wednesdays from 12:30-1 p.m. at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.
This five week Lenten series is designed to be a lunch-time offering of music, poetry and short prayers.
Caroline Stephenson, communications coordinator at St. Luke’s, hopes that, “this will be an opportunity for those working in the downtown area to walk over and partake of a peaceful moment in our beautiful space. We’re excited about the outstanding lineup of musical offerings that have come together for this series and are glad to be able to offer this to our community.”
Through a partnership with the Salisbury Symphony, the SSO String Trio will present the March 23 program. Executive Director, Hunter Safrit said, “The Salisbury Symphony String Trio typically serves as our education outreach group, but we are extremely excited to be partnering with St. Luke’s for their Lenten meditation series. Music transcends barriers and brings us all together.”

March 9: Joseph Judge, baritone and Flora Abernathy Lester, organist. Judge is chair of the Department of Music at Pfeiffer University. Lester is organist at Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
