On Wednesday, October 2, Chapel worship will unite the communities of Capital University and Trinity Lutheran Seminary.
The Rev. Dr. E. Wray Bryant will preach, the Rev. Dr. Joy Schroeder will preside, and Philomel will provide music. The service will begin at 10:05 am in Kerns Religious Life Center on Capital's campus. This will be a communion service. At Chapel communion is open to everyone, but you can attend chapel even if you choose not to receive communion.
Under the direction of Dr. Lynda Hasseler, Capital University’s Philomel, which means Nightingale, is a select ensemble of singers who master the challenge of advanced literature from a range of musical styles spanning Renaissance to contemporary/pop styles. With extensive training rooted in the rich Lutheran heritage of fine a cappella singing and a longstanding global touring tradition, Philomel is more than a collection of beautiful voices. It is a choral envoy of joy, hope and positive social change that leverages the transformative power of music to connect people from diverse cultures around the world.
Unique to this group is a repertoire whose styles span a wide range of secular and sacred choral literature, spirituals, gospel, carols, music celebrating a global perspective, and jazz and pop music. If you have questions about communion you are invited visit with Pastor Gary on Tuesday, anytime from noon to 3 pm. His office is in Kerns. Feel free to bring your lunch.
