Music in the Chapel: Harpist Cathy Victorsen and Flutist Jane Strauman

Sunday, September 9, 2018 | 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.

 

Thank you to everyone who attended this event!

 

Lakewood’s “Music in the Chapel” concerts showcase a variety of artists in one of our city’s most beloved architectural treasures — the Lakewood Memorial Chapel.

 

On Sunday, September 9, hear the world premiere of an original composition called "Dancing With The Angels," a tribute, in part, to the mosaic angels that line the Lakewood Chapel dome. The piece, written by flutist Jane Strauman, will be played with harpist Cathy Victorsen as part of a diverse musical program that ranges from classical to Broadway to Irish pieces played on both Pedal and Celtic harps. 

 

The concert begins at 3 p.m. Doors open at 2 p.m. Self-guided tour brochures of Lakewood’s Memorial Chapel will be available.

 

About the Chapel

Dedicated in 1910, the Lakewood Memorial Chapel was modeled after the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul by prominent Minneapolis architect Harry Wild Jones. Its 10-million piece mosaic interior, created by New York designer Charles Lamb, features a 40-foot high dome ringed with stained glass windows and 12 mosaic angels. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Chapel is one of the finest examples of Byzantine mosaic architecture in the country.
