The culmination of St. Stephen's 175th anniversary year was a beautiful Choral Concert of Vivaldi's Gloria and other music. Though it was a night of torrential rain, the church was packed full. We were lucky to hear the début of an astonishingly lovely new piece specially commissioned for the event -- "How Lovely is Your Dwelling Place" by Paul Mealor, honoring both St. Stephen's and Armonk in our joint 175th anniversary.
Many thanks to the St. Stephen's Chorale, organist Terence Flanagan, and above all to our Music Director, James Turner, whose unflagging efforts have made our church central to music in Armonk.
The reception following the concert resembled a town party, with community members of all sorts come together. Due to the fun and hubbub, there are no photos! Many thanks to Claire Turner and the young Turner helpers for arranging the very successful gathering!
