Concert in historic church has motherhood themes

A concert with themes of motherhood, timed to the Mother’s Day season, will take place Sunday in a landmark Buffalo church.

The “Sweetness of Our Mother Mary” concert will begin at 1 p.m., in Corpus Christi, a historic Catholic church on the East Side.

The concert will feature the church’s new director of music, Istvan Hernek, as well as Brittney Mruczek, a popular local singer, organizers said. Mruczek will sing Marian hymns in three languages, Polish, English and Italian. Hernek will perform original music.

The concert will conclude with a presentation of the hymn “Czarna Madonna,” a tribute to the Black Madonna, in Polish and English, organizers said.

The concert will also feature Corpus Christi’s newly repaired organ, organizers said. Corpus Christi is near the Broadway Market on the city’s East Side, at 199 Clark St.
