One of the best things about Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church is the eclectic group of  people in our congregation. One of them is Lexington musician Grover Mollineaux, who had the idea to create a monthly music venue where the audience focused on the music, and all the proceeds went to the great mission work of MaxPres.

Grover kicked off The Listening Room at Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church on Jan. 24, 2014, with his own program of spirituals, "The Road to Canaan." The performance delivered unique performances of slave songs and the history behind them, accompanied by coffee, wine and dessert.

Next up for The Listening Room is Robert Tincher on Feb. 28.
