First Congregational Church’s weekly music series, Sunday Afternoons Live, presents its latest installment on Sunday, Feb. 16 at 4 p.m. The concert, titled The Many Faces of Love, features soprano Lindsay Kesselman and pianist Christopher James Lees. They will present an assortment of pieces about love, using contemporary American vocal music, sacred and romantic songs.

Ms. Kesselman is an American soprano currently on tour with the Philip Glass Ensemble as a member of his groundbreaking opera, Einstein on the Beach. A specialist in contemporary vocal repertoire and chamber music, Ms. Kesselman actively commissions and records.

Mr. Lees is a prize-winning orchestral conductor who has performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Detroit Symphony, and National Arts Centre Orchestra among many others. He is the Associate Director of Orchestras at the University of Michigan and moonlights as a collaborative pianist, primarily of contemporary vocal music.

This season of Sunday Afternoons Live was underwritten by the late Stella Miazga, an advocate who generously bequeathed funds posthumously to support the series. The season concert concludes on Feb. 23 with Music of Bach’s Time and Our Time with harpsichordist Masayuki Maki.

This concert will be held in church’s auditorium. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Tickets are $20 each and available at the door. All school-aged youth are free.
