Event Details

Celebrate the 26th anniversary of Music from St. Mark’s with an evening of Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms. The Choirs of St. Mark’s and Temple Beth-El join with YOSA in presenting this choral work that premiered to a sold out audience in 1965.

St. Mark’s Episcopal Church has a deep commitment to our core vocation, Feeding San Antonio with the Bread of Life. Throughout the ages, music has been an important way that humans find themselves nourished and transformed to be able to serve God and the world God has created. The arts are a central human expression of that divine spark we each carry.

Founded in 1858, the first members of St. Mark’s sought the highest standards as they sought to complete a house of worship designed, improbably, by the nation’s top church architect, Richard Upjohn. By the time of its centennial, St. Mark’s was recognized as “one of America’s great parishes.” St. Mark’s has continued onward, celebrating its sesquicentennial in 2008, welcoming visitors and new members, and developing collaborations within the San Antonio community and beyond. Just this January, St. Mark’s hosted the inaugural Alamo Baroque Festival presenting historically informed performances of music from the 17th and 18th centuries, featuring internationally renown guest artists who worked with local musicians of all ages and skill, and culminating in free public performances.
