MMPAF Concert Adoration of the Magi

ADORATION OF THE MAGI
Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at 7:30 pm
in the Chapel

Jeff Morrissey and Bill Trafka returned for the ninth annual performance of their very popular Christmas program inspired by the elegant paintings that adorn St. Bartholomew’s South Chapel.

In 1919 Ethel Parsons Paullin and her husband Telford created the beautiful Adoration of the Magi and the 13 medallions surrounding it depicting subjects connected with the Nativity of Christ.

Morrissey highlighted the artwork weaving passages from the Bible with Polish carols, spirituals, and popular Christmas favorites to present a visual and musical telling of the Christmas story. This year’s performance celebrated the 100th anniversary of the painting.
