On the last Sunday of the Epiphany, Feb. 26 at 10 a.m., guest artist Emily Drexler will perform works for both violin and viola in "The Violin Transfigured."  The program will be at the Church of the Nativity Episcopal Church, 1201 Cross St., in Fort Oglethorpe.

The program contains works by various composers including solo works by J. S. Bach and featuring “The Vision of Joan of Ark” for violin and organ by the French Romantic composer Charles Gounod. This performance is part of The Church of the Nativity’s monthly Rising Artists series. Nativity also presents a mini-concert series with organist and music director Kristopher Schwinn. 

Ms. Drexler teaches privately and helps coach chamber ensembles in the Chattanooga area. Recently, she played the first movement of Kabalevsky’s violin concerto with the Southern Adventist University Symphony Orchestra as one of the winners of its annual concerto competition.  Currently, Ms. Drexler studies violin with CSO Associate Concertmaster Joshua Holritz and viola with Megan Chisom at Chattanooga State. 

This free performance takes place during the worship service. Childcare is provided.
