This was our first concert back live and in-person. We didn’t video record it so we hope you were able to join us.
Cypress Creek FACE brings back live music! Musique Chez Moi presents a “Musical Potpourri,” featuring pianist Roger Keele, soprano Anne Heath-Welch and baritone Lee Gregory. Enjoy a sampling of musical genres, including opera and musical theater, in our first live Promenade Series concert at John Wesley UMC in over a year. This free concert is our way of welcoming you back to live performances.
The concert is free but we need you to reserve a ticket. You can do this right now by clicking here.
We are still observing CDC precautions. Everyone who attends the concert will have to wear a face mask. We hope you understand that this is out of an abundance of caution for everyone’s safety.
We will be serving free refreshments: pre-packaged cookies and bottled water.
We can’t wait to see you ~ with your mask on ~ and experience the wonderful power of music!
