11 March - Times and Seasons
Musicians from St Mary Magdalene's and friends present a program of choral music of the Church's year. The Church's year has its own rhythm, and its own moods, from the quiet expectation of Advent in the weeks before Christmas, to the gladness of Jesus' Birth. The season of Lent in the weeks before Easter is a time of penitence, even sadness and sorrow, before by the joy of the Resurrection at Easter and the gift to the Church of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. This concert celebrates the Church's year in psalm and song from the 16th to the 21st centuries.
St Mary Magdalene's is an Anglican church in the heart of the city of Adelaide, an open, welcoming and inclusive Christian community. Founded in Moore Street in 1886, the church has been a constant presence in the city, having a commitment to social justice, and a special ministry to the poor and marginalised people of the city. St Mary Magdalene's church building is a beautiful little jewel, visually delightful and with a lovely acoustic well suited to vocal music. In 2018 the church community continues the popular tradition of hosting concerts as part of the Fringe Festival.
