2021-2022

Music in the Sanctuary

Welcome to our fall season of transition as we progress steadily toward a full and normal season, hopefully next year. We are making the journey back as safe as possible. This fall, we begin with a recording release in September showcasing the LSO at the First United Methodist Church (FUMC) of LaGrange. This is a complete concert viewable for free on YouTube, and will confirm the quality of sound obtained at this venue. Three LIVE concerts, also at FUMC of LaGrange, will follow through the end of the year. One concert is scheduled each month from October through December 2021. All concerts are socially distanced and ticketing is easily done online. Tickets for the live concerts go on sale Friday, September 24th. They are $20 per concert with special pricing for a set of all three. Join us as we move toward the future, with “Music in the Sanctuary.”
