The Lamb by Jay Rouse and Rose Aspinall
The Music Department of Colesville United Methodist Church presents The Lamb. Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed! The living God has poured out precious blood to reclaim us, His people. This blueprint is the heart of the gospel, and Jay Rouse and Rose Aspinall have made that incredible gift central to the creation of this musical. The work of the cross is celebrated and reverenced with emotion, warmth, sorrow, and rejoicing. The anchor song, It Took a Lamb, is a classic from Geron Davis, while This is How We Know What Love Is provides an original offering that tells the story and excitement of running to the tomb and finding the stone rolled away.
Plan to join us for an evening service on Good Friday, March 30th at 7:30 PM.
The service will feature soloist Vikki Jones and the Colesville Choir. Vikki Jones is an artist with exceptional musical ability. A graduate of the Catholic University of America, she has been cited in the Baltimore Sun for both her “rich and warm sound” as well as her “brilliant coloratura”. Ms. Jones is a versatile soprano and performs a wide range of repertoire from opera to oratorio. Her roles include Anna in Verdi’s Nabucco, Sister Lillianne in Dead Man Walking, Elvira in L’Italiana in Algeri, Bianca in La Rondine, Sandrina in La Finta Giardiniera, Poppea in Agrippina, Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi, Mimi in La Bohème, and Pamina in the Die Zauberflöte. Ms. Jones has appeared with the Baltimore Opera Company, Opera Vivente, Municipal Opera Company of Baltimore, Opera North of Philadelphia, the Maryland Lyric Opera, Concert Artists of Baltimore, the Johns Hopkins Orchestra of Baltimore, and the Baltimore Symphony. She has also sung for various churches and cathedrals throughout the United States and performed for two years as a soprano soloist with the National Spiritual Ensemble, formerly the New England Spiritual Ensemble of Boston, Massachusetts. Most recently she was an ambassador for the Baltimore Opera’s education outreach program, in which she toured schools throughout Maryland, and presented the lives and careers of both Marian Anderson and Leontyne Price. Always the consummate perfectionist about her work, Ms. Jones continues to perfect her craft under the tutelage of Millicent Scarlett in Silver Spring, Maryland
