Rock Spring Concerts

Rock Spring has a robust music program that includes a variety of concerts throughout the year, as well as our Rock Spring Recital Series.

2016-2017 Rock Spring Recital Series

The Rock Spring Recital Series began in the spring of 2001 and has been bringing wonderful concerts to music lovers for 14 years. The series began as an outreach to the suburban Washington community looking for more “local” concerts. Our mission is to provide professional musicians in an intimate, fine acoustical setting for a minimal suggested donation. We have established a following for concert lovers who seek an affordable chamber music performance with top-notch musicians in a relaxed, comfortable setting.

Calling all youth! It’s our first summer “PopUp YoRS.” Summer is the perfect time to have a cold lunch... So we’ll gather in the Saegmuller Room after church and then walk to Zinga for frozen yogurt.

Join us in conversation about potential programming for next year in interfaith relations.   What might we want to learn?

by Laura Martin

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
