Since 1996, Good Shepherd Catholic Church has opened its doors to hundreds of New York's most talented musicians, giving them the opportunity to perform before live and appreciative audiences. "Music from Good Shepherd" has now entered its 20th season of free Sunday evening recitals!

The series began on October 2
nd and continues today with the voice and guitar ensemble Duo Cantabile. Next week, 8 Strings & a Whistle features the unique combination of flute, viola and cello.

November brings a roster of diverse styles, including guitarist Daniel Lippel; the Tanguera Tango Ensemble; and 9 Horses, a chamber jazz supergroup. (Musically, a supergroup consists of members who are already successful as solo artists, such as The Three Tenors.) The month concludes with Jonathan Cohler on clarinet and Rasa Vitkauskaite at the piano.

December opens with soprano Emilia Cedriana Donato. The Chancel Choir and the Orchestra of Good Shepherd Church then culminate the series on December 11
th with their annual presentation of G. F. Handel’s oratorio Messiah.

All the recitals begin at 6:00
PM. You’re invited to become a part of this wonderful tradition of music-making in the community of Marine Park. While admission is free and open to the public, voluntary donations for the performers are encouraged. “This series has become a cultural treasure for the southern end of Brooklyn,” said Michael Fontana, the music director. “It’s an opportunity for people to hear some outstanding solo musicians and ensembles in a beautiful setting.”
