Wednesday 1st February 2017 19:00Midweek Focus Sermon on the Mount 5 21 Barry Road
There’s no more telltale sign of a society’s moral erosion than the breakdown of integrity. In domestic settings, this breakdown reveals itself most dramatically in marital infidelity. In the personal lives of individuals, it evidences itself most clearly in verbal dishonesty. When partners cheat on each other . . . when people lie to one another, a community’s moral fiber weakens and quickly deteriorates. Such things should not characterize those who claim to belong to Christ. In His greatest of sermons, Jesus addressed both these issues. As He did, He went deeper than the letter of the Law. He made it clear that marriage requires absolute faithfulness, and personal relationships require absolute truthfulness.

15:00Canadian composer Mark Kolt in concert Brechin Cathedral
Brechin Cathedral, 26 Feb 2017 at 3pm
Entry by Donation
Music Concert by Mark Kolt (Canadian Composer)
Mark Kolt is coming to Brechin and has kindly agreed to put on a concert for us in the Brechin Cathedral in aid of the music fund.

Mark Kolt and his wife Crystal
Mark Kolt is a composer, and a player of keyboard and many bowed string instruments from all over the world. He lives in the small mining community of Flin Flon, in the Canadian province of Manitoba. As a young man, he obtained a Bachelor of Music degree in Winnipeg, Manitoba’s capital city, and worked full time as a pianist for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers. He also won a number of Canadian songwriting awards, including at the Granby Quebec Festival for French popular song.
In his 30’s, after obtaining a law degree and getting administrative training, he moved from Winnipeg to Flin Flon and has worked there in the municipal office since 1995, and for the last 11 years as Chief Administrative Officer. However, his love of music persists. Mark and his wife Crystal together with many local collaborators (including his friend and violin maker Alistair Callegari from Edzell), have helped Flin Flon become a very culturally active community belying its small size and relative isolation. The Flin Flon Community Choir, which they founded, has performed with Symphony Orchestras in Canada and the United States, including a performance at Lincoln Center and two performances at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Mark has written songs, original choral pieces, choral and band arrangements, and two full length musical theatre works, which have been performed in Flin Flon and in Winnipeg. He is also musical director for Johnny’s Social Club, a Flin Flon venue presenting new programs of musical theatre and songs in a variety of musical styles every month.

Mark has had a lifelong interest in history, culture and Christian spirituality, and looks forward to the recital at Brechin Cathedral very much. As an organist, he has done service music for several denominations, including Anglican, United Church of Canada (a joint group of Canadian Presbyterian and Methodist congregations) and Roman Catholic churches in Winnipeg and Flin Flon. Mark’s specialty is improvisation, in a variety of classical and popular music styles, and he tries to work this into performances whenever he can. In particular, he has repeatedly done musical events in art galleries, musically responding to the art works around him. For the organ recital in Brechin, Mark encourages members of the audience to bring favorite photographs or art work reproductions, and Mark will create improvised musical impressions of the visual pieces in question. The photographs or art works could represent people, things, landscapes, or be completely abstract in nature. Family albums and art books are welcome. Mark appreciates a challenge, so don’t hold back….

Mark wishes to thank his friend Alistair Callegari for his generous hospitality in hosting Mark’s stay in Scotland, and is pleased to assist Brechin Cathedral in its efforts to preserve Scottish history and culture and maintain a faith community in these changing times.
