The Escape Ensemble will also perform liturgical Renaissance and Baroque era masterworks during January Sunday services in The CHAPEL at Seaside starting at 9:30 a.m. and again during the fellowship gathering at the conclusion of service.

A final concert is planned for Sunday, Jan, 26, as part of a special music and prayer program. Pop-up performances and classroom visits are planned throughout the month as well as a presentation at the Coastal Branch Library on Jan. 13 at 1:30 pm.
