Our Emmaus community is hosting a special guest. He is a Celtic singer/musician/composer and will share some of his music with us. There will be a free will offering to help defray the costs of the event. We will also provide some refreshments.
Stefan Andre Waligur is also known as Macushla: an Irish
term of endearment meaning "heartbeat of the Beloved". He is a
contemplative, musician/composer. Classically trained at New England
Conservatory his music has been performed by the Chamber Brass of Boston, the
Artaria String Quartet, and the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble. After a
life-changing visit to the Taize community in France he began to write music in a
similar style. Although similar to Taize chants, these new chants incorporate
American rhythms and harmonies, Celtic melodies and the call and response style
of Indian raga.
Stefan will also be with us for mass on the 24th at 11:00 am. You are welcome to join us for mass, too!
See Stefan's website at Songs of Peace. You can hear some of his music and order it, too.
