Classical music lovers  are in for a treat.

Christ the King Episcopal Church, 2800 W. Ina Road, will play host beginning at 3 p.m. Sunday to “Classical Meets Ecclesiastical: Famous Favorites” featuring works by Schubert, Corelli, Bach, Albinoni, Haydn and Groom.

The concert is free, but donations will be accepted for Interfaith Community Services, a local nonprofit agency, to help seniors, people with disabilities and families in financial crisis.

The event will include “movable music,” which features parts of the concert being played at various locations in the church.

The Tucson Symphony Orchestra String Quartet will open the show, with David Rife and Wynne Wong-Rife on violin, Ilona Vukovic-Gay on viola and Mary Beth Tyndall on cello.

The concert also will feature the Powe family trio playing a composition they created with the TSO Young Composers Project earlier this summer. The youth attended the program with financial assistance from Interfaith Community Services’ Youth Enrichment Activities program. In addition to the original composition, the kids will perform a string trio by Haydn.

Capping off the concert, organist David Gay will perform musical masterpieces on the church’s pipe organ, which was built in 1949 by noted American organ-building firm Aeolian-Skinner. The organ’s original home was at First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Tucson. Tucson-area organ builder Michael O’Sullivan restored the organ and installed it at Christ the King in spring 2012.
