Celebrate the Arts with a concert at Doylestown Presbyterian Church


Doylestown Presbyterian Church presents its first spring concert in two years as part of the Celebrate the Arts series.

The community is invited to the sanctuary at 127 E. Court St., Doylestown, at 4 p.m. Sunday, May 22, to experience “Requiem for the Living” — a timely and stirring piece from composer Dan Forrest.

The church’s Chancel Choir and Orchestra will be joined by the Bucks County Ecumenical Choir in offering this performance. The Ecumenical Choir features singers from throughout the Bucks County, many of whom are not otherwise affiliated with the Doylestown Presbyterian Church congregation.

Forrest describes the work in this way: “A requiem, at its core, is a prayer for rest – traditionally, for the deceased. The five movements of ‘Requiem for the Living,’ however, form a narrative just as much for the living, and their own struggle with pain and sorrow, as for the dead.”

Led by Jason Moore, director of Music and the Arts, and Mina Choi, organist and youth music director, Doylestown Presbyterian Church’s Music Ministry brings this event to the community.

“Over the past two years our lives have been turned around over and over again,” Moore said. “We hope this program will serve as another step forward in our collective healing; helping us move from darkness and fear toward hope and peace.”

A free-will offering will be received to support future Celebrate the Arts events.
