2019 Music Series Season
Our 13th Season Providing the Mansfield and Richland County Communities with Great Music!
“Where words fail, music speaks…”
So said the Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen in speaking of the power of music. Robert Schumann, the great German Romantic composer of the early 19th century, said it this way: “To send light into the darkness of human hearts – such is the duty of the musician and the artist.”
The power of music to express our deepest, most inexpressible longings and our most profound emotions is but one reason the St. Peter’s Music Series works so hard to preserve and present great music in the Mansfield and Richland County communities. We also strive to educate and equip our children to carry on with the gift of music through educational outreach by artists who perform in our concerts.
The St. Peter’s Music Series is committed to the growth and development of our community through collaboration in the creative and performing arts with other organizations and groups in our area and beyond. From area church and school choirs, to Mid-Ohio Opera, to the Mansfield Symphony Orchestra, our Music Series has long sought to build a solid collaborative foundation for Music and the Arts here.
