Baritone Jeff Morrissey and pianist William Trafka return this season with their popular Christmas program inspired by the elegant paintings found in the South Chapel of St. Bartholomew’s.
In 1919 Ethel Parsons Paullin and her husband Telford created the beautiful Adoration of the Magi and the 13 medallions surrounding it depicting subjects connected with the Nativity of Christ.
This program brings the artwork to life, weaving passages from the Bible with Polish carols, spirituals, and ballads from the Southern Appalachian Mountains to present a visual and musical telling of the Christmas story.
Jeff Morrissey, baritone
