Special Gatherings

“The dinner party, as a metaphor for Gospel living, is not about cultivating a society of one’s own kind, or getting ahead through entertaining. Rather, the dinner party is about celebrating life with your neighbor, crossing the boundaries of race and class, and sharing the bounty of the harvest with those less fortunate than you. That’s what it means to ‘let mutual love continue while showing hospitality to strangers.’ ”

Midsummer’s Eve Concert
Peter Kendall Clark, Brooklyn’s “Brownstone Baritone”
7 pm at the Chapel

At the start of the Pandemic in 2020, New York City Opera baritone Peter Kendall Clark gave 100 consecutive concerts in front of his Brooklyn Heights home to celebrate the Front Line and Health Care workers. Joined by friends from Opera and Broadway, the series was named Songs From The Ledge, garnering attention and praise from local and international media. The New York Post christened him the “Brownstone Baritone” and CBS Inside Edition called his show “the hottest ticket in town.” Two years later, the (now weekly) series continues to lift spirits of the Brooklyn Heights community as well as audiences around the country. Peter returned to the stage this season in the world premiere of Ricky Ian Gordon and Michael Korie’s The Garden Of The Finzi-Contini presented by New York City Opera and the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene. A summertime parishioner at St. James The Fisherman, he is thrilled to bringing his cabaret style performance of Broadway Classics to the Wellfleet Community.
