String quartet to play on Palm Sunday at St. Paul Lutheran

Classical Encounters String Quartet will provide pre-service music outside St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Glen Burnie on Palm Sunday, April 8, then perform inside, accompanying singers in the 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. services.

Formed in 1987, the group includes Chris Gosper on viola, who is a member of St. Paul's; Carol Ihli, first violin; and Marlene Browne, second violin. Cathy Hess will be sitting in as a replacement on cello at the Palm Sunday performance.

Classical Encounters and the Heritage Choir will accompany a church quartet of singer-soloists, Eileen Izzard, Maureen Griepentrog, Bob Michaels and the Rev. John Warther, church pastor, during the service.

For Easter Sunday, a 6:30 a.m. sunrise service is planned on the front lawn of the church, at 308 Oak Manor Drive.
