Bach and Chopin help conclude St. Luke’s Episcopal Church’s current Music Live with Lunch season on May 17.

Choir director and pianist Lorraine Martin leads and plays in the program starting at noon on Tuesday. The show features St. Luke’s choir and musicians performing a broad spectrum of octavos from Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Christ the Lord is Risen” to Martin playing “Barcarolle” by Frederic Chopin on piano. The 30-minute show ends with the spiritual “African Sanctus” by Harlan using drums, other percussion, vocals and piano.

The choir features Art Moore, Bob Barclay, Bob Hosek, Carl Kaiser, Carolyn Braun, Kara Selby, Janet Popelka, Jason Popelka, LeRoy Martin, Marilyn Freeman, Nancy Drew, Nancy Jones, Ray Braun, Richard Chambers, Roberta Boone, Susan Kaiser, Tess Teel, Tom Reis and Victoria Singer. Musicians include the Rev. Bob Rhoads, Bob Haick, Jean Pratschner and Nancy Culbertson.

Martin’s life in music began at age 4, which led her to Juilliard at 16. She went on to pursue music in Minnesota and received several accolades including a selection by the Minnesota Department of Education to discuss and demonstrate musical and educational techniques with Chinese teachers and students.

Music Live with Lunch spans more than 25 years and was founded by Lou and Bill Yandell as a musical outreach to the community.

Concerts begin at noon the third Tuesday of each month from September-May in the sanctuary followed by hot lunch in the parish hall.

Tickets are $10 and are available at the door, by calling 683-4862 or visiting the church office, 525 N. Fifth Ave., from 9 a.m.-noon Monday-Thursday.
