Music and Meditation Saturday, April 28

This event is past, but we have a video recording of the Music and Meditation event.

On Saturday, April 28 we will have a special interfaith gathering of Music and Meditation. We will be featuring a live performance by the Australian Concert Violinist, Marlene Crone.

Marlene Crone started learning violin at the age of seven. She was recipient of the Ohman Music Scholarship at Methodist Ladies College from 2005-2009. In 2014 she was awarded her Bachelor of Music in Violin performance from the Johannes-Gutenberg-University in Mainz, Germany under the tutelage of Prof. Ervis Gega. She then successfully completed her Master of Music in 2017 studying with Prof. Benjamin Bergmann in Mainz. Currently she plays in the Hessen State Orchestra Wiesbaden and will commence in October 2018 at the Frankfurt University of the Arts, her second Master studies specializing in Baroque Violin. Her career dream is to win a permanent position in a professional German orchestra and freelance as a baroque violinist at the same time.

Meditation and music go hand-in-hand so that she has been joining online meditation groups whenever she can after being introduced to it through her parents. She is certain sharing God’s love through music is her calling.

This gathering will be one hour and 15 minutes and will feature four segments of a five minute performance by Marlene Crone followed by a 10 minute silent meditation. At the end of the four segments, we will have 15 minutes for open sharing.

The music will be in place of readings.
