Special to The PREVIEW
This Sunday, Nov. 10, at 5 p.m., St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church will offer its monthly Sunday Night Unplugged music and meditation service, featuring the talents of violinist Heidi Tanner, flutist Kathy Wadenpfuhl and pianist Sally Neel.
The service is free and open to any wish to attend.
Heidi, Kathy and Sally were recently honored to be guest musicians for the Episcopal Diocesan Convention in Denver. Their beautiful and soothing meditational music was lauded by delegates and clergy from across the state as the trio offered their talents to the daily worship services.
“In our diocese, they are considered something akin to rock stars,” said Fr. Doug Neel, rector of St. Patrick’s. “Their music moved us all to a deeper level of spiritual awareness, bringing great peace and beauty to the services. And, although I know pride is a sin, I was absolutely thrilled to be able to show off a little. What our musicians offer here in Pagosa is every bit as high-quality as what the bigger churches have to offer in the larger Front Range cities. I was more than a little proud of that fact.”
The trio will give locals the opportunity to hear for themselves, as they repeat the music they played for the convention, plus a few extra pieces at this week’s Sunday Night Unplugged. The service is simple, beautiful and meditational, offering an opportunity to experience the beauty of holiness, through sound, sight and silence.
St. Patrick’s is located at 225 S. Pagosa Blvd.
