Music in the Chapel: Sarah M. Greer

Sunday, October 6, 2019 | 3 - 4 p.m.

 

Thank you to everyone who attended this event!

 

Join us for jazz vocalist Sarah M. Greer in the intimate Lakewood Memorial Chapel!

 

Named one of "15 artists of color to know on the Twin Cities jazz scene" by The Current in 2019, Sarah M. Greer is an improvisational vocalist who performs regularly with a cappella ensemble the Give Get Sistet and a variety of Minnesota jazz musicians, including Steven Hobert, Dean Magraw and Davu Seru. Her debut album, What the Music Says Do, was released this past year.

 

She's performed at numerous events, festivals and conferences, including the 30th Annual Women & Spirituality Conference and she's received three Artist Initiative Awards by the Minnesota State Arts Board.

 

Doors open at 2 p.m. Arrive early and take a self-guided tour of the Lakewood Memorial Chapel before the concert. Free tour brochures will be available.

 

The Lakewood Chapel — one of our city’s most beloved architectural treasures — is an intimate setting that seats about 160 people. Because of its incredible beauty and historical significance, it is a popular place for weddings,

end-of-life services, music concerts, tours and other celebrations of beauty, art and remembrance. See what others say about the Music in the Chapel concert series.

 

Dedicated in 1910, the 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. Learn more about the Lakewood Chapel.
