Stefan Donner  
…direct from Vienna, Austria, one of the great musical capitals of the world, we present this organist extraordinaire, playing works of Carl Czerny, Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Felix Mendelssohn, and Franz Schmidt, just days before he plays at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in Manhattan!

Atlanta Celli   
...a unique treat, four lovely young women playing cello in a quartet, Atlanta Celli will offer up Bach to the Beatles, the classical to the contemporary, with all of the pulsing rhythms, soaring melodies, and plaintive adagios of one of the most sumptuous of all the string instruments in our orbit.

Sunday, November 4, 2018 at 7pm in the Nave:
Atlanta Percussion Trio 
...a concert of all percussion instruments? You betcha! There is wonder, there is grace, there is thunder, there is a place… even for members of the audience to participate. Learn about the instruments, rapture to their majesty, and lift your hearts to the pulsing beats of many different members of the mightiest section in the orchestra.

Atlanta Brassworks 
…Holy Innocents is proud to offer up a quintet of Atlanta’s finest brass specialists playing the familiar to the not-so-familiar… the melodic to the dissonant… the baroque to the best of modern brass music. A treat for ears, eyes, and soul, Atlanta Brassworks will lift you up. You will be inspired and will leave with a happy heart.

Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 7pm in the Nave:
Elisabeth Remy Johnson, Harpist
...To be conveyed from the mundane to the celestial, join us at Holy Innocents to revel in the gorgeous tones of the heavenly harp as played by Elisabeth Remy Johnson, principal harpist of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Each selection in the Legends for Harp program has a basis in literary narrative… a poem, a play, or a folk song. From Prokofiev to an Appalachian Folk Song, each delicate strain will soothe you and transport you. Ahhh, such is the music of the harp!  

All concerts are presented free of charge to the Parish and wider community, thanks to the generosity of the Friends of Music.
