Inside Out Concert
Sunday ~ 4:00 pm, Hunnewell Chapel FREE, Donations Gratefully Accepted
The award-winning Inside Out concert series returns to Arlington Street Church with works for wind quintet by Ligeti, Hindemith, and Bach.
Hindemith wrote his Wind Quintet during the roaring twenties when jazz, jitterbug and all of the arts were flourishing after World War I.
Ligeti's music is at times super-energetic and provocative, and at other times deeply emotional and evocative. His works have been featured in such films as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Eyes Wide Shut. Bach is sublime. Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag said, "Consciously, I am certainly an atheist, but I do not say that out loud, because if I look at Bach,
I cannot be an atheist."
Every Sunday ~ 6:00 pm, Hunnewell Chapel

The Arlington Street public transit station re-opened in June 2009 and now provides handicapped access from the transit station to street level via elevators and/or a ramp. A separate part of the MBTA project created a wheelchair ramp leading from street level on Boylston Street to the church office door.
Handicapped access to the Sanctuary on Arlington Street is provided by a ramp on Arlington Street which leads to an entrance to the Sanctuary.
During worship services, and other special events, FM amplification headsets can be provided upon request. Braille hymnals are also available for Sunday services, as well as a large print version of the hymnal and each week’s order of service. Please ask an usher for assistance.
Arlington Street Church has a wheelchair accessible restroom immediately adjacent to the Sanctuary.
Join us for worship this Sunday! This week's sermon by Liz Weber, Intern Minister is "Resistance and Resilience."
