Redeemer’s October Evensong infused with French horn
On Sun., Oct. 20, at 5:15 p.m., the Church of the Redeemer, 222 S. Palm Ave., invites the community to Solemn Evensong complemented by the sounds of French horn played by Joe Assi, Co-Principal Horn for the Sarasota Orchestra. Ann Stephenson-Moe, Redeemer's Organist and Choirmaster, will perform on the church's massive Nichols & Simpson organ, and Redeemer's Choir will sing. The Anthem will be James Mulholland’s “If Love Should Count Me Worthy,” and the Service will be Herbert Howells’ “Service in b.” A reception in Gillespie Hall will follow the performance.
Assi, a New Jersey native, has performed with the Sarasota Orchestra since 2008. He earned a Bachelor of Music degree from Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music before beginning a Master of Music program at The Juilliard School in Manhattan. In 2012, Assi, who is of Lebanese and Irish-American descent, performed with the Palestine National Orchestra in Jordan.
