Advent Vespers service Dec. 7

The University of Jamestown Department of Music will present its annual Advent Vespers service at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7 in Voorhees Chapel. The event is free and open to the public.

The service, an opportunity for individual reflection on the Advent and Christmas seasons of the church year, will include congregational hymns and organ selections. All selections will be played on the Black-Schlossman Pipe Organ, 1999, gift of the late Anna Jane Schlossman and her family. The organ is one of the five largest pipe organs in the state of North Dakota.

Organists David Morlock and Dr. William Wojnar will lead the program. Familiar carols and chorales will be sung, and the congregation will hear organ compositions from various countries and historical periods.
