Free, non-perishable food donation requested.

Event Description:

Memories, smells, and sound combine in this unique "Food for Thought" program.  Rev. Armstrong begins with an audience discussion about food memories. Artist Leah Gauthier will then prepare soup on stage during the performance as the two pianists perform the seven movements of Visions de l’Amen, a rarely performed work for two pianos composed by Olivier Messiaen that depictis different interpretations of the word “Amen.”

The music, together with the sounds of chopping and cooking, will create a rich and innovative aesthetic. The audience will enjoy the soup at the conclusion as they discuss the ideas of smell, sound, and emotional memory.

This event is also an opportunity to reflect on North United Methodist Church's active food ministry and the notion that we live in a world of abundance alongside those who have little.
