Attend Fort Wayne Church of your choice

If you are able to stay in Fort Wayne longer in the day, the annual conference of the Good Shepherd Institute begins on Sunday with the following musical events:

  • 4:30 p.m. - Organ Recital, Craig Cramer, organist
  • 7:30 p.m. - Choral Vespers, with the Seminary Schola Cantorum singing works of Bach, Brahms, and others

The conference begins on Monday morning under the theme:

An Open Conversation on Music in the Church
A Look at the Elephant in the Room

Over the years our conferences have explored many aspects of the church’s worship life, and together we have rejoiced over the wonderful gifts that have been handed down to us in liturgy and song. But there is one topic, the proverbial “elephant in the room,” that has been begging for attention; that topic concerns the choice of music for use in the church. This year we intend to address it head-on.
