Frank Zilinyi, organ
The Music Series at South Church is incredibly lucky to have an artist of Frank R. Zilinyi’s stature right under our roof! Every week, he inspires the South Church congregation and visitors with his glorious musicianship. Frank's program will take us through the underworld with a new organ transcription of Bach's monumental Chaconne for violin, spread out the vast expanses of space with a series of soundscapes from the film “Interstellar” and shake the rafters with Widor's tempestuous Symphony No. 7.

A Candlelight Festival of Lessons and Carols
The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a gift to all who attend. Each year, we invite the community to come and celebrate the Christmas season with South Church. For some, it is the music of the South Church Chancel Choir. For some, it is the tradition. For some, it is the scripture. And for some, it is the feeling of community and quiet ambiance. Whatever it is that moves you, we hope you will join us and celebrate the joy of the season.
