Remember the hymn In Christ Alone? Do you want to hear it performed live by its original recording artists? This Friday, November 9 at 8:00pm, Manhattan's Calvary Baptist Church presents Hymns for the Christian Life with Keith & Kristyn Getty. Hailing from Northern Ireland and now residing in Nashville, the couple showcases hymns with Irish melodies as well as American bluegrass and country music influences. Keith says "In the ten or so years that have passed since Stuart Townend and I wrote In Christ Alone; my wife, Kristyn, and I have been afforded the opportunity to visit cities large and small all over the world to share that song and others from our catalog of modern hymns. It is our goal as modern hymn writers to bring to the church songs with lyrics that embody rich theology and music that is accessible for congregational singing." If you liked Age to Age: Generations of Faith, you'll be sure to enjoy this similar event.

If you're interested in something more classical, internationally renowned conductor Tito Muñoz and clarinetist Charles Neidich join the String Orchestra of Brooklyn this Saturday, November 9 at 8:00pm for a performance of two works each composed in the year of the composer’s death; Tchaikovsky's final Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74, “Pathétique” and Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A major, K. 622. They perform at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity in Brooklyn Heights.

Then on Sunday, November 10, at 3:00pm the Bella Voce Singers, the Artichoke Dance Company and the Children’s Chorus of Bay Ridge will present the concert event, “Hope,” performing Anne Frank: A Living Voice, at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Bay Ridge. This seven-movement piece is based on selected excerpts from The Diary of Anne Frank. Spanning more than two years of hiding in the annex, the texts and music portray a psychological progression from fear and despair to strength and hope.
