The Second Sunday concert at the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 2 p.m., will feature the Madison Brass ensemble in an outdoor, festive performance called OcTUBAfest! 2012.
Following the style of the German Oktoberfest, this concert features an afternoon of Bavarian fare followed by music from a brass ensemble under the trees on the church lawn.
Dr. Patrick Tuck, founder of Madison Brass, invites everyone to gather at 12:30 p.m. for brats and sauerkraut plus other Bavarian entrees.
“At 2 p.m., the Madison Brass will be performing an energetic waltz, polka and blastissimo repertoire, very much like the genuine Oktoberfest.” he said.
The concert and the food are free, but a suggested donation of $5 will be directed to Episcopal Relief and Development’s efforts to alleviate the effects of Hurricane Isaac’s recent sweep over Haiti.
The Rev. Dr. Jan Cottrell and her husband, Dr. Ken Cottrell, who are leaders in the Episcopal Church’s mission to Haiti, will be present to share the importance of helping to rebuild this country torn by poverty, earthquake and hurricane.
Dr. Tuck expressed gratitude to the concert’s promotional sponsor, Berea Coffee and Tea, 124 Main St., in Berea. He said the festivities will be moved indoors in the event of inclement weather.
The musicians who make up Madison Brass are Patrick Tuck, Dylan Brown and Mike Shepherd, trumpet; Andrew Sehmann, horn; and Josh Cole, trombone; with Evan Smith Trombone and David Deaton, tuba.
The Oct. 14 OcTUBAfest! is part of the Second Sunday at Our Saviour concert series. The church is located at 2323 Lexington Road, Richmond. For directions or more information, visit the web site at oursaviourky.org or call the church office at 623-1226.
