Becket Arts! is an on-going series at St. Thomas à Becket. Four concerts are performed by members of our community and West Virginia University as well as other schools over the course of six months — usually between October and April.  The most recent Becket Arts! was on Dec. 16, 2018.

“Christmas Potpourri,” the most recent concert, featured Christmas readings and songs by Ryan Claycomb accompanied by guitarists Jeffrey Carver and John Taylor (pictured left bottom). The Becket Choir’s choral soloist, Michaela Woodbrey, sang a selection of favorite  Christmas songs, accompanied by St. Thomas’ Music Director and Organist, Dr. William Haller. The Skidmore family, Bill (cello), Dorothy (flute), and Robert (viola), assisted by guest violinist Stephanie Pratt, opened the program with one of Mozart’s flute quartets (pictured left top). The program closed with the hilarious “arrangement” of the Little Drummer Boy tune worked into many familiar classical excerpts entitled Parumpapumpum.

Our next Becket Arts! program will be on February 17, 2019 at 3:00 pm, and will feature the West Virginia University’s Bluegrass Band.

Tickets will be available at the door ($8 adults, $6 seniors, students free).
