Music in the Chapel: Anonymous Choir
Lakewood Cemetery's Music in the Chapel concerts showcase a variety of artists in one of our city's most beloved architectural treasures, the Lakewood Memorial Chapel.
On Sunday, April 8, join us for the beautiful and soulful voices of choral ensemble, Anonymous Choir, singing the music of such luminaries as Kate Bush, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell and Wendy Rene. Anonymous Choir emerged in 2011 led by pianist/musician Nona Marie Invie and close friends as a way to purge the winter blues and stir something musical and creative together with a community of women.
The Lakewood Memorial Chapel will be open for viewing and self-guided tours beginning at 2:00 p.m.
Dedicated in 1910, the Lakewood Memorial Chapel was modeled after the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul by prominent Minneapolis architect Harry Wild Jones. It features a 65-foot high dome ringed with stained glass windows and 12 mosaic angels. The Chapel's mosaic interior, created by New York designer Charles Lamb, is made up of more than 10 million mosaic pieces of marble, colored stone and glass fused with gold and silver. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Chapel is one of the finest examples of Byzantine Revival architecture with mosaic interior in the country.
