AT PARK CITIES PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH2016–2017
…that my heartmay sing Your praises
and not be silent.Psalm 30:12
Our capacities to compose and to respond to musical form and sense
directly implicate the mystery of the human condition. To ask “what is music?” may well be one way
of asking “what is man?”George Steiner
The Performing Arts at Park Cities Presbyterian Church presents the 2016–2017 concert series with a variety of musical events designed to take the listener beyond the reach of words to explore the depths of human experience. Please invite a friend and join us as we enjoy the gift of music, given by our Creator God.
