Vino & Vespers with John Angotti - April 22, 2009

Vino & Vespers


Vino & Vespers gives busy people of faith a place to pray simply (you don’t have to plan a thing!), eat and drink well (you don’t have to bring any food), and talk candidly about faith, church, and real life (you don’t have to prepare any lesson plans or make any handouts!).

Gather with others who love the Church, and spend an evening with three of God’s best gifts: prayer, food, and conversation. We’ll begin with Evening Prayer followed by an intimate conversation about faith and daily life as we savor delicious desserts and fine wine.

A Special V & V with
John Angotti

composer, musician, missionary

John AngottiJohn Angotti is a full time music missionary who travels throughout many parts of the world providing inspirational music and witness to all ages through concerts, workshops, retreats, missions, conferences, and worship. He is originally from Clarksburg, West Virginia, and now resides in Memphis, Tennessee, with his wife Tracy and two children, Dominica and Tre. John is the Artist in Residence at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Naperville, Illinois, where he writes and leads worship on a monthly basis. He is a graduate of West Virginia University and the US Military School of Music and was a member of the US Navy Band where he was the lead vocalist.

John has won numerous awards including, "Male Vocalist of the Year," "Pop/Contemporary," and "Praise and Worship Album of the Year" from the United Catholic Music and Video Association. His powerful voice and writing style includes contemporary rock, pop, and Latin rhythms, along with his ability to give new life to traditional classics in chant and classical genres.

When Pope Benedict XVI visited Nationals Park in Washington D.C., John was invited to perform "Stand in the Light" for the pre-Mass celebration. This song was chosen as the 2007 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress theme song and is the title of one of his latest recordings. John's most recent CD is "Joy Beyond Our Dreams" which features uplifting new music for the Easter Season.
John is published through World Library Publications and his music is also available through Christian Booksellers, iTunes, and several other digital music stores.

Join in an evening of music and coversation with John about faith, music, liturgy, and living a Catholic life of purpose and mission.
