The Trawick-Scott Advent Recital Series

The Trawick-Scott Advent Recital Series was established in 2000 in memory of a long-time Ascension Choir member, Zach Trawick.  It was begun to bring live musical performances to the Montgomery Community during the Advent season, and to encourage people to remember that in the Church, Advent is a season of preparation.  Audiences are encouraged to come at noon, leaving aside work and the busyness of the season with the intention of being still, and performers are encouraged to perform music based on Advent themes and inspirational music from diverse styles and composers.

Although the original benefactor of the series, Patricia Trawick Guest, died recently, Zach and Pat Trawick’s daughter and her family, Patty and Carlton King, have continued in their support.  In 2018, the family of June Scott, who was an ardent supporter of Music at the Ascension made a  memorial gift that will assure that the series continues for many years.

Following the recitals, the audience is invited to have a simple lunch before returning to their workplaces and busy schedules.  Because we cannot gather in crowds during the pandemic, performers that would not ordinarily come to Ascension have submitted their recitals virtually, giving us the opportunity to hear artists from as far away as the U. K. To date, more than 75 performers have been featured on the recital series.

We greatly appreciate and invite support of Music at the Ascension and we thank you for being part of this year’s 21st Season.

Join us each of the four Wednesdays before Christmas at noon.

This week features Thomas Sheehan, Organist at The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.
