Baritone and St. Mark’s congregant and choir member, Anthony Turner, performs a one-man song cycle set to live music composed by Mary Carol Warrick, at the McEvoy Auditorium at the National Portrait Gallery. These songs were influenced by the poems complied in The Gathering, a book by artist and St. Mark’s music director, Jeannine Otis. The presentation features bassoonist Elise Wagner; percussionist Luke Hubley; and pianist Paul Boyd. Turner’s performance offers a special tribute to victims of gun violence, while also conveying a sense of hope within our communities, our criminal justice system, and humanity.

This performance is made possible by a generous gift from Tommie Pegues, Esq. and Donald Capoccia.
