A Choral Evensong honoring David Ashley White will be sung on Sunday afternoon, May 18, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church, 6221 Main St, Houston 77030.
Featured in the Evensong will be the composer's Amarillo Canticles, along with a selection of his hymns, anthems, motets, and organ music.
Dr. White is completing a 15-year tenure as Director of the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music and will return to teaching, as well as have more time to compose. He joined the music faculty at UH in 1977 and began attending Palmer Church in 1974, serving on the Vestry in the early 1980s.
All are welcome as we celebrate the career of this fine Anglican composer and look forward to his continued years of music-making.
A reception will follow.
