St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church, 4440 N. Campbell Ave., will offer Choral Evensong at 4 p.m. Sunday.

Choral Evensong is rooted in one of the daily monastic services that date from the medieval times, and St. Philip’s Evensong is based on the service that has been sung from the Book of Common Prayer from the 16th century.

Evensong is drawn almost entirely from the Bible — the psalms, readings and canticles are all selected from scriptural sources.

An auditioned choir of youth and adults, the Schola Cantorum, provides music for this service.

The service, which lasts about 45 minutes, will be followed by a half-hour organ recital featuring Tucson organist Chris Fresolone.

Fresolone recently completed his doctoral studies in organ performance with a minor in choral conducting from the University of Arizona and is organist at Casas Adobes UCC Church in Tucson. He also is assistant director of the Tucson Girls Chorus.

Evensong services and organ recitals continue the third Sunday of each month through May. More information about upcoming guest artists is available at www.friendsofmusictucson.org (click on “Other Events”).

The public is invited. Donations will be accepted.

Parking is available in the north parking lot or under the solar structure on the east side.

For more information, call Woosug Kang, St. Philip’s music director, at 299-6421, Ext. 19.
