Johann Sebastian Bach, Vaughan Williams, Edward Elgar and Tomaso Albinoni are but a few of the composers to be featured Sunday, Sept. 12, by the Irvin/Christopher Duo.
The violinist and organist, respectively, are scheduled to perform from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Missouri United Methodist Church. Free donations will be taken during the performance.
Donations will go toward the church’s Concert Series, a non-profit monthly events series starting with “Who’s Afraid of Classical Music?” by the 9th St. Philharmonic Orchestra and Columbia Chorale.
That performance is scheduled for 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, at the Missouri Theatre. The event will be moved to the church sanctuary should the theater become unavailable. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door.
Irvin played with the Concert Series two years ago, which provided the connections to make the upcoming performance possible, said Alex Innecco, the music director for Missouri United Methodist Church.
Innecco said he hopes the event will become an annual fundraiser.
“It’s a varied program for every taste,” he said, “It’s very accessible, even to those who don’t know classical music.”
In addition to this performance, Irvin will play Sunday morning at the 8:50 and 11 a.m. services.
