More than 150 people were treated to a relaxing evening of music in the gardens of Christ Church on August 4. The summer concert series featured the Rev. Dr. Ann Salmon on flute and piccolo, accompanied by parish music ministry coordinator Dr. Joy Berg on piano. Berg also led “Psalms in the Garden: Questions and Convictions – Our Garden in the House of Faith” on Wednesday mornings throughout the summer.
Many will remember Salmon from her time as rector of the Anglican/Lutheran parish in Edson. Now retired as Dean of the Lutheran Theological Seminary, Ann lives in Saskatoon with her husband Carl. For the concert, she was joined by her son David Salmon who graduated this spring with a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Alberta Augustana Campus. Together they performed "The Elephant and the Fly," by Henri Kling, with Ann on piccolo and David on tuba.
The garden concert series (also featuring performances by members of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and Folk musician Martin Kerr) concluded for the season on a rainy evening, September 1, with music performed in the church hall by Robert Howey, bass clarinet; accompanied by Megan Crane on piano.
