This Sunday, April 30
th at 2:00 PM, Immaculate Heart of Mary will present the Inaugural “Young Heartists” recital! Come here this budding talent!

Like #young@heart, which showcases high school and college students along with young adults beginning their professional careers; this event here in the “Heart” of Brooklyn features our even younger musicians. Elementary and middle school students have the opportunity to share their aspiring pursuits with us

Kimberly Lebron and Marilyn Lopez will play trumpet and saxophone, respectively, on variations of themes by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig von Beethoven, a march by John Philip Sousa, and Taio Cruz’ dance-pop hit “Dynamite.” On the viola, Hannah Dono will play the Shaker melody that's become known as “Simple Gifts,” then she’ll switch to cello for “Alla Hornpipe” from George Frideric Handel’s Water Music. Agnieszka Wysocki is going to sing “His Glory Appears” by the Contemporary Christian worship band Hillsong United. Flutist Adam Bueno will play the pastoral “Dance of the Blessed Spirits” from Christoff Willibald Gluck’s opera Orfeo ed Euridice.

In Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry, the U.S. Bishops pointed out youth ministry is more than programs and events. It is “the response of the Christian community to the needs of young people, and the sharing of the unique gifts of youth with the larger community.” Make sure ours is a parish that supports the gracious endeavors of these talented young people! Attend this short recital and bring a friend! It's a great opportunity to catch a rising star, and say you heard them when their career was just beginning!
