GRASS VALLEY, Calif. December 9, 2019 – A string trio will offer a free concert at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11, at Peace Lutheran Church in Grass Valley.

This string trio features Ann Gaines on violin, Judy Bromley on viola and Martha Brown on cello. These local musicians come with a distinguished and wide-ranging performance repertoire.

On Wednesday, Dec. 18, Peace’s December mini-concert features a unique voice duet with Judy Kenney and John Simon.

Each concert will be followed by Holden Evening Prayer at 6 p.m. People are invited to stay for this short, but moving, moment of songs, chants and prayers that prepare one’s spirit for Christmas.

For more than 20 years, Peace Lutheran Church has offered these free, half-hour mini-concerts to the community on Wednesday evenings in December before Christmas. This mid-week music provides relief from the holiday rush and helps people connect to the true meaning of the season.
