Ecumenical Theological Seminary and Michigan State University Community Music School Detroit present the Sacred Music of Gordon Young. Featuring commentary and performance by David Wagner and the MSU Detroit New Horizons Band, Edward Quick, Director.
An historic Detroit pipe organ will breathe new life for the first time in many decades during a special concert presentation titled "The Sacred Musical Legacy of Gordon Young" at the Ecumenical Theological Seminary housed in the First Presbyterian Church of Detroit on March 13 at 7 p.m. The concert will be held at 2930 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, Michigan 48201.
The event is a musical collaboration between the Ecumenical Theological Seminary (ETS) and the MSU Community Music School-Detroit -- two Midtown neighbors on Woodward Avenue in Brush Park. The performance will feature Dr. David Wagner, renowned classical musician and radio host for WRCJ-FM, who will perform on the ETS 3,700 pipe Casavant organ, as well as the MSU New Horizons Concert Band led by director Edward Quick.
The concert program will pay tribute to the legacy of celebrated Detroit organist, choirmaster, composer and music pedagogue Gordon Young, who led activities at the First Presbyterian Church in the early 1950's to 1979. A widely-recognized composer of sacred music, Gordon was a prolific composer for organ.
Concertgoers will also enjoy an exhibition of paintings by artist Timothy Orikri entitled "Sacred Legacy of Color." On display throughout the 124-year old church and seminary, the works will be available for purchase by the public.
Additionally, this concert is the beginning of our weekend festivities celebrating the arrival of the Rev. Dr. Stephen Butler Murray as the fourth President of Ecumenical Theological Seminary. His inauguration will be the next morning, on Saturday, March 14th at 10:30am in our historic sanctuary.
