Explore music, mystery and method with Mark Schweizer Jan. 6

Music, mystery, mayhem, ministers and Mark! Yes, Mark Schweizer brings all this to Tryon Fine Arts Center for the Jan. 6 Explore the Arts program.

His liturgical murder mysteries eight in all involve church goers and staff at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, in a fictitious town of St. Germaine, N.C. Why do people keep dying in the little town? Is it something in the water? The mountain setting? Various church groups? Whatever the reason, it certainly has nothing to do with St. Barnabas Episcopal Church. Or maybe it does.

Schweizer will not solve the mysteries during the program, but will talk about the method he uses to combine his talents of music, writing and comedy to produce these books. He is a choir director, publisher, composer, a teacher, the conductor of TFACs DIY Messiah, and a welcome member of Tryons arts community.

In its second year, TFACs Explore the Arts is a series of programs for adult and youth designed to pique curiosity and creativity, and to explore diversity in the arts.

The program is held in the Mahler Family Board Room at TFAC from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 6. Admission is collected at the door. No reservations are necessary. Light refreshments will be served.
