March 27, 7 p.m. Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church will feature a presentation of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s Stabat mater. Presenting the ancient work are Gail Wettstein, soprano, Caroline Melcher, alto, and Micah Raebel, organ. Stabat mater is a 13th century work that portrays the sorrow of Mary as she stood next to Jesus as he was crucified. Pergolesi’s version was written in 1736. The concert is free, and a freewill offering will be collected to donate to the Alamo Area Chapter of American Gold Star Mothers, Inc., an organization of mothers who have lost a son or daughter in the service of our country.
