Collegium Musicum

The Lititz Moravian Collegium Musicum (LMCM), a select ensemble of professional instrumentalists from south central Pennsylvania and beyond, will return once again to Fellowship Hall on Sunday, March 3 at 7 p.m. for another captivating musical performance. Continuing its mission to provide a rare glimpse into a distinctive facet of musical life and culture in early Lititz, this musical time-traveling adventure features rarely heard works edited by Artistic Director and Conductor, Dr. Jeffrey Gemmell. This program features the “greatest hits” selected from our previous six concerts and, apart from works performed on the 1787 Tannenberg pipe organ, is an encore performance  of the finale concert presented this past August for the international 8th Bethlehem Conference of Moravian History and Music in Bethlehem, PA. Since its resurrection in 2018 as Lancaster County Pennsylvania’s “newest, yet oldest, chamber orchestra,” audiences have enjoyed these distinctive, informative, and fascinating “gatherings” in the community where it all began. A variety of genres will reflect the historic and unique nature of the Lititz Collegium Musicum Collection with overtures, sinfonias, symphonies, minuets, solos, duettos, trios, Parthien (Harmoniemusik), military marches, vocal works, and more. Composers include Moravians and non-Moravians, such as J. C. Bach, J. Bechler, R. L. Boccherini, G. Demachi, J. Früauff, H. Grenser, A.Gyrowetz, J. Herbst, W. A. Mozart, J. G. Naumann, W.Pichl, C. Stamitz, and P. Wranitzky. Audience participation will be energized through hymn singing, and a Museum and Archives Moment will feature items shared from the congregation’s historic collection. Please join us for this special event and experience “history you can hear!” Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 per student (cash only)and will only be sold at the door beginning at 6 p.m. Donations/memorial contributions for this project are always appreciated and should be sent to the Lititz Moravian Church Office (checks may be made payable to“LMCM” and identified as such on the front of the envelope). For more information, contact the congregation’s Director of Music Ministries ( jeff@lititzmoravian.org) or call the church office at 717-626-8515.
