Invite someone to #young@heart...

In 2014, we started presenting an annual free concert called #young@heart. It's a recital of young people performing here at the “Heart” of Brooklyn. It provides high school or college students studying music as well as accomplished young adults beginning their professional careers something that can be difficult to come by in New York City: performance opportunities where they can play what they want. Ask anyone who was at last year’s concert, and they’ll tell you what an extraordinary amount of talent they heard.

The Conference of Roman Catholic Cathedral Musicians states “Concerts given in churches are desirable manifestations of the sacredness of art, the evangelical mission of the Church, and an exemplary form of outreach to the community. Properly prepared and performed, such concerts give witness to the Gospel by addressing poverty of spirit through the unique power of music to inspire, elevate, teach, and heal.”

We will present our Third Annual #young@heart on Saturday, January 16th at 7:30
PM. Phillip Milbouer will once again play the harp. Evan Rodolfo Katsefes, who sang for Pope Francis when he was here, will sing. And I assure you, these gifted young performers will be “properly prepared.” So since they’re doing their part, can you do yours? Do more than just think about whether you’re able to attend. Participate in “the evangelical mission of the Church” and help spread the word! Invite a neighbor, even if you can’t come. As “an exemplary form of outreach to the community” tell at least one person who doesn’t attend Mass here. Spread the news and the joy of music...
