Cabaret Night, Saturday, October 26, 7 pm

Enjoy a delightful evening of musical entertainment by a wide variety of talented performers, including members of our choir, as the Parish Hall is transformed into a cabaret club. This high-quality performance of witty and deeply felt music is a real gift to our community. Invite some friends, and join us for a lively evening. We’ll provide beer, wine, soft drinks, and some nibbles, but you are welcome to bring an hors d’oeuvre or dessert to share with friends.
Admission is $10 per adult to help us cover our costs.

St. Matthew Passion (final chorus) by J.S. Bach from First Congregational Darien on Vimeo.

Music has long had a special place in our worship at First Congregational Church. As a congregation, we believe that its beauty reflects on the glory of God and that by lifting our voices to Him in song and instrument, we praise Him in a meaningful and powerful way. Over the past several years, under the leadership of our Music Director Dan Hague, our commitment to the church’s musical tradition has deepened further. During this time, we have broadened our use of music with several community-oriented concerts.
