Lenten Concert Series

Posted By admin on Mar 1, 2017 |


The 26th Annual Lenten Concert Series at Two Rivers United Methodist Church will feature a variety of musical genres from around the Quad Cities. Each concert is free and starts shortly after noon at 12:15 on Wednesdays between March 8 and April 12. The schedule includes chamber singers, harp, jazz, blues, and classical music. It also includes long-time guests of the concert series and new performers.

Edgar Crockett and David Holcomb have been getting people’s toes tapping at the concert series for many years. Their jazz duo is more than just entertaining, but also usually includes some story telling and education. Bret Dale is the successor to the late, great, Ellis Kell at the River Music Experience in Davenport. Dale and a group from RME are making their second appearance at the Two Rivers Concert Series.

Hannah Holman is the principal cellist for the Quad City Symphony Orchestra. Benjamin Loeb is an accomplished pianist and the executive direcetor of the QCSO. Their duet is sure to be a highlight of the series.
