Arlington Church Presents ‘A Rock and a Hard Place’ Concert

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is presenting a concert this Sunday, Feb. 22, at 4 p.m. featuring the music of Verdi, Strauss, Joni Mitchell and Jerome Kern, to name a few. The concert, titled “A Rock & a Hard Place: Songs of Obsessive, Wonderful, Terrible Love,” will feature award-winning soprano Tracy Cox and Kim Pensinger Witman on piano.

Cox is a recipient of the 2014 George London-Kristen Flagstad Prize, the Birgit Nilsson Prize at the 2013 Operalia Competition, and has recently performed with The Philadelphia Orchestra, Wolf Trap Opera, Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Los Angeles Opera. Admission to the concert is free, though the church encourages concertgoers to donate non-perishable food items to its food bank.
