Welcome! Make yourself a cuppa and have a look around.
Needing a gentle, mid-week pause? Join Stephanie for a candle-lit Taizé service of prayer, where we search for communion with God through community prayer, song, and silence. All peoples and faith traditions welcome.
The Taizé service of prayer is music-centric, using contemporary chants with short texts that are sung again and again, inviting individuals to meditate on the texts, deepen into them, pray through them. There is also a period of silence for personal reflection.
The Taizé prayer will be led by Stephanie Hollenberg (cantor) and Luke Concannon (guitar), hosted by Reverend Sage Cole and the Swedenborg Chapel community.
October 16 through December 1, Stephanie will be singing at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum as part of Lee Mingwei’s Sonic Blossom (2013). During Museum hours, Stephanie and other vocal soloist will bring opera to the Museum in the form of a spontaneous gift. Donning an elaborate robe, a singer will select a visitor in the galleries at random, approaching them with the simple question: "May I give you the gift of song?" If the offer is accepted, they will be guided to a specially designed chair and given a personal performance of one of five lieder (art songs) by Franz Schubert.
Stephanie Hollenberg is honored to join the Goshen College Choirs and Symphony Orchestra as Soloist in Johannes Brahms’ stunning German Requiem. This performance celebrates the life of Debra Detweiler, a professor of voice at Goshen College, who passed in the Spring. Information regarding tickets and live-streaming can be found online.
