PETERS­BURG — On Sun­day, at 4 p.m., St. Paul’s Epis­co­pal Church will be hav­ing an Even­song fol­lowed by a 45-minute con­cert be­gin­ning at 5 p.m. The Even­song will fea­ture St. Paul’s Choir un­der the di­rec­tion of Charles K. Lind­sey, Jr., or­gan­ist and choir­mas­ter. The mu­sic will in­clude the Evening Ser­vice in D of Ge­orge Dyson, the Pre­ces and Re­sponces of Richard Ayle­ward, and motets by Or­lando Gib­bons, “Almighty and Ever­last­ing God” and Thomas Tomkins, “Great and Mar­vel­lous Are Thy Works”.

Im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the Even­song, there will be a gospel mu­sic con­cert fea­tur­ing the Oak Lane per­form­ers Andy Smith, Liz Nance, and Rus­sell Law­son. Oak Lane acous­tic mu­sic was formed in 2004 by a few cho­ris­ters/ mu­si­cians from St. James Epis­co­pal Church’s West Gallery Choir. They play an eclec­tic com­bi­na­tion of folk, coun­try, blue­grass, and gospel mu­sic. Whether they’re singing the work of unique singer/ song­writ­ers like Johnny Cash or Mary Chapin Car­pen­ter, ground-break­ing blue­grass by Bill Mon­roe, tra­di­tional moun­tain and roots songs, or Patsy Cline’s gospel tunes, they give each song a spe­cial Oak Lane ar­range­ment.

A re­cep­tion will be held in Bris­tol Hall im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing the con­cert. Al­though this is a free event, a free will do­na­tion may be made to the Joseph A. Whit­tle Mu­sic and Arts Fund of St. Paul’s. His­toric St. Paul’s Epis­co­pal Church is lo­cated at 110 North Union Street in Peters­burg. Park­ing is lo­cated on the street in front of the church or in the park­ing lot be­hind the church off N. Mar­ket Street.
