Music & The Arts
Independent Presbyterian Church has played a significant role in music and the arts in the Birmingham community for many years. The November Organ Recital Series and the Religious Arts Festival have been in existence since the 1960s and 1970s, and have brought many world-class artists to the area. Since the first Christmas Concert in 1964, the IPC Choir has presented more than 175 concerts and special services.
All events, given freely to the public, are funded through endowments and the yearly operating budget of the church.
Beginning August 25, 2013 and continuing on the fourth Sunday of each month, the new worship series Fourth Sunday Evensong at IPC will begin. A select group of singers from the IPC Choir – the IPC Camerata – will be the resident ensemble for these services. These services will last about 40 minutes followed by an extended organ postlude.
For further information about a particular event, contact Barbara Fillmer, Administrative Assistant in Music and Fine Arts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
