ART SONG IN THE ATRIUM is a virtual Lenten series, designed to offer music and poetry, images and scripture readings as aids to personal devotions and a time of meditation.  

The series features singers from Mayflower’s Chancel Choir and, beginning February 22, will also feature the beautiful Bösendorfer piano acquired in the fall of 2020, housed in the warm, vibrant acoustics of our Atrium.  

We are grateful to the many generous donors who contributed to the purchase of our new piano, which allows for projects such as this one to come to life.
