La Jolla Presbyterian Church’s five-concert series celebrates sacred music

By Susan DeMaggio

La Jolla Presbyterian Church announced its 2012-13 concert series, which kicks off at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 21 with Tim Zimmerman and the King’s Brass. Zimmerman’s “band” has won acclaim for performing hymn classics with a contemporary flair. The group features three trumpets, three trombones, a tuba and percussion and keyboards.

The musicians, based in Indiana, have been playing both secular and sacred music for three decades. They have 15 recordings out.

“We present inspiring music for the whole community with this concert series,” said Ron Bolles, Worship & Arts Director at the church. “Our acoustics are superb and
musicians say they love performing here. All our concerts are followed by a reception with the artists, and many times, the 600-seat
capacity is full.”

Bolles said the church has been offering community concerts for the past 51 years as a gift to La Jollans. “And the opportunities to hear sacred music are becoming fewer,” he added.

For Sunday’s concert, Zimmerman et al will be joined by the La Jolla Brass for some selections.

Here is the 2012-13 season schedule:

n Dec. 16: 4 and 7 p.m. La Jolla Presbyterian Church Christmas Concert. The program will feature Bach’s “Magnificat” with the chancel choir and a professional orchestra under the direction of Keith Pedersen, plus traditional carols sung by a variety of choirs.

n Feb. 10: 4 p.m. Singer/songwriter Mary James in concert.

n April 21: 4 p.m. Eight violinists known as Hutchins Consort will present the West Coast première of Henry Brant’s “Climates.” Also on the program, the music of John Dowland.

n May 19: 4 p.m. La Jolla Presbyterian Church Spring Concert. Hear Mendelssohn’s “Elijah’ with the chancel Choir and a professional orchestra and many soloists.
