    The month of November brings some contrasting and fun music for celebrating autumn and the Thanksgiving holiday. The choir will return with River in Judea, a choir piece written in gospel style that uses the metaphor of the river to describe the human quest for peace and inspiration. The song describes the river as "a singing, ringing river that my soul cries out to know."

    Two-time Grammy nominee Claire Lynch will return to Baton Rouge on Sunday, November 6 at the Unitarian Church. Claire has collaborated with superstars like Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton, and is compared to icons like Judy Collins, Sarah McLachlan, and Alison Krauss. She will be backed by the members of her white-hot Claire Lynch Band, which features Bryan McDowell (fiddle-mandolin), Jarrod Walker (mandolin-guitar), and Mark Schatz (bass-banjo). Doors open at 5pm, with a pre-concert show at 5:30pm. The Claire Lynch Band will play at 6pm. General admission is $20, students under age 17 are $10, and children under age 12 are free.

    The choir sings again the Sunday before Thanksgiving, a beautiful arrangement of the pop song Fields of Gold, originally by Sting. 

    On November 27, we'll enjoy the first Sunday of Advent with guest pianist Myrtle David.
