Here’s what’s happening in Dayspring music this month:

Wednesday Music Appreciation Hour

During Lent, we are listening to and discussing Mendelssohn’s Elijah. Each week, I’ll play a section of the work and comment on it. If you enjoy music, this series will give some insight into how we approach a grand work like this in order to understand it and convey it as compellingly as possible to the listener. Music Appreciation Hour is open to all, Wednesdays from 7 until about 8 p.m. on Zoom.

Virtual Choir

Have you always wanted to sing with the Dayspring Choir (or any choir) but hesitated? Now’s your chance! We are hoping to put together some virtual choir performances for use in future online services. Each person makes a video of themselves singing to recorded accompaniment, and we assemble the recordings into a single video. To express interest, please complete this form.

Rescheduled Concert

You may recall that we had a concert planned for mid-January that we had to postpone for health reasons. I’m glad to report that everyone is now well and that we have rescheduled the concert for Sunday, March 28, at 2 p.m. The program is music composed by Black American composers, and we will be requesting donations for the newly created Dayspring HBCU Scholarship Fund. The concert features ASU faculty member Nathan De’Shon Myers ( and will be available on all the usual live-streaming channels for Dayspring events. We hope you will join us! Learn more
