3rd Grade Visitors Say Thanks!

These are just a few of the many wonderful thank you notes we received.
We're so glad you enjoyed learning about The Locktown Stone Church!





The Lambertville Traditional Carol Society, now in its tenth year, was started as a choir of friends who came together to sing many of the well-loved but less familiar carols of the season. The choir was formed by invitation rather than by audition, allowing for many and varied musical histories among the friends, but joined together by a love of singing. The choir extends its repertoire in the Spring to include a cappella pieces from the Baroque and Renaissance periods, along with the occasional piece of traditional Americana.

A good will offering will be collected to share between the Locktown Stone Church and the Lambertville Food Pantry.



  
Weddings in the Church

The church provides a wonderful setting for a country wedding, with its spare architecture, its beautiful stone walls, surrounded by tall trees, standing next to a country road. The front courtyard is bordered by a low stone wall, making a perfect space for gathering after or before your event.

The interior is painted white, creating a quiet, peaceful elegance. Flower arrangements stand out and the light from the north window creates a special atmosphere. Thanks to the excellent acoustics provided by the vaulted ceiling, it is possible to have one or two musicians perform wedding music on instruments as quiet as unamplified guitars.

The church comfortably seats 100 people, but can easily acccomodate 125. Electricity, sanitary facilities and parking are available.

If you are interested in using the church for your wedding, we would be happy to show it to you. To arrange to view of the inside of the church, or to obtain information about reserving the church, write to Luise Wingerter@centurylink.net

Concerts in the Church

Every year, the Friends of the Locktown Stone Church sponsor a concert series to highlight the beautiful acoustics of this old building. We have found that classical music works especially well, and that Sunday afternoons in the fall are particularly enjoyable.

Church Sketchmusic notes

Tsu Fil Duvids Klezmer band performing May 7!


The Friends of the Locktown Stone Church are pleased to be hosting a concert on Sunday May 7th at 4 P.M. featuring a Klezmer band (a first for this venue) from Highland Park, Tsu Fil Duvids (Yiddish for "Too Many Davids"). Three friends, all named David, founded this group eight years ago. Now there are nine "David" members, who come from a variety of professional and cultural backgrounds.

Klezmer music originated in the Jewish communities of Europe. It incorporates many of the distinctive sounds of all nations in which those communities lived but in an emphatically "Jewish" manner. Klezmer music has a broad palate of musical sounds because of the geography of its origin. Once it arrived in the USA, Klezmer Music incorporated American musical ideas.

Tsu Fil Davids looks forward to sharing the joys of this music with you!
