Arlington Musical Prayer Station

Arlington Musical Prayer Station with Katharine Key

Intone, O My servant, the verses of God that have been received by thee, as intoned by them who have drawn nigh unto Him, that the sweetness of thy melody may kindle thine own soul, and attract the hearts of all men.
(Baha’u’llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u’llah, p. 294)

Dear friends!

What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, music, fellowship, tea poured in peace, cake shared with a smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing songs and prayers with friends gets us all closer to the Creator and recharges us for days ahead.

Mitko Gerensky invites you and your loves ones to a very special Musical Prayer Station and house concert with Katharine Key on Saturday, January 8th, at 7:30 pm,. This is the second time she is performing at the Arlington Prayer Station and everyone who attended the first time, enjoyed it immensely!

Katharine Key is a singer-songwriter who loves playing music to uplift people’s hearts and enrich their lives.  She is classically trained in piano and self-taught on guitar, but only plays so that she can sing — her first passion.  She has been a Baha’i for 14 years and took up guitar and song-writing so that she could serve the community, since music and the arts are an essential element of Baha’i community life.

Her debut album, “Intone,” consists of passages from the Baha’i scriptures set to original music in a number of styles, ranging from jazz to samba to folk and rock. She is currently working on a second album most of whose lyrics are her own reflections on spiritual struggles and breakthroughs.  She will perform selections from both “Intone” and the upcoming album.  “Intone” will be available for sale at the concert as well as online at www.cdbaby.com/cd/katharinekey.

When she is not singing, Katharine works in the field of HIV prevention research.  Look for her and drop her a note online at www.justkat.com.

Please let Mitko Gerensky know if you plan on coming so that he can plan the size of the cake, or if you need details on the location.
