Join us on February 17, 7 pm, in the sanctuary as we celebrate the repairs done recently on the church pipe organ. Joining our own organist, Daryl Yager, to share organ performance pieces and hymns will be Curt Sather, Organist & Choirmaster at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Olympia, and Dan Colgan, director of music ministry at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Olympia.
The concert will include a freewill offering to help provide for future maintenance of the instrument, with a portion of the offering being used to provide scholarship assistance for aspiring church musicians who study with each of the evening’s three organists.
The program will include some of the following selections:
Trumpet Tune in D Major David N Johnson (1922-1987)
Do Not Forget Me (Non ti scordar di me) Ernesto de Curtis (1875-1937)
Variations on “I Greet You, Merciful Jesus” (Sei gegrüßet, Jesu gütig) J. S. Bach (1685-1750)
“Grand Triumphal Chorus” Op. 47 No. 2 – Alexandre Guilmant (1837-1911)
Prière à Notre-Dame” from Suite Gothique Op. 25 no. 3 – Léon Boëllmann (1862-1897)
Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring (Cantata BMV 147) J.S. Bach (1685-1750)
There will also be a number of traditional hymns sung and a brief video showing the work recently accomplished on the organ. For more information, please call the church office at 360-943-2661.
