With the Artscape Festival happening just a few blocks away, July 21-23, we will open the doors at Brown Memorial for our own free events as part of Artscape’s “In the Neighborhood” program.
Take a break from the heat and come to the cool, beautiful serenity of our sanctuary in Bolton Hill for the following events:
Enjoy a silent movie screening in our sanctuary – the 1925 film “The Freshman” starring Harold Lloyd – accompanied by Brown’s Minister of Music, Michael Britt, on our famous E.M. Skinner pipe organ.
Michael Britt was appointed Minister of Music at Brown in 2012 and has a bachelor’s degree in Organ Performance from Peabody Conservatory of Music. In addition to his career as a church musician, he is known nationwide as a theatre organist and silent film accompanist and is currently the house organist at the Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick, Md.
View the beauty and artistry of Brown Memorial’s 17 stained glass windows during this tour of the church’s sanctuary. Eleven of the windows are products of the Tiffany Studios and were installed in the early 1900s at the height of the American art glass movement. Two of the windows – the two transept windows that each measure 16×32 feet – are among the largest stained glass windows ever made by Tiffany.
Light refreshments will be served in the church’s Assembly Room.
