MAPLEWOOD, NJ - SEPTEMBER 1, 2007 - St. Joseph Church in Maplewood, NJ, announces a concert with Dan Schutte, the world-renowned composer of music for worship and prayer. Some of his most popular songs include “Here I Am, Lord,” “Sing a New Song,” “City of God,” “You are Near” and “Table of Plenty,” just to name a few. His songs can be heard in churches throughout the world. For over 35 years, Dan has been sharing his gift of music and lyrics, and he continues to inspire with uplifting new compositions for liturgy and personal spirituality.

His concert will be an evening of reflection and music entitled “Prince of Peace.”

The concert will be Friday, September 28 at 8:00 PM at St. Joseph Church. It will be followed by a workshop the next morning, Saturday, September 29, 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM. His workshop, “Join in the Dance,” will explore ways of becoming a more welcoming and participating community in worship. It will be a chance to learn directly from Dan Schutte and have a more personal encounter with this fine composer. The workshop is not just for those involved in music ministry but for anyone who loves music and wants to feel more involved in their worship.

The price for the concert is $10.00 per person. The workshop is $20.00 per person. A combination ticket for both the concert and workshop registration is $25.00, saving you $5.00 if you attend both.
