CHOIR & CONCERTS
MUSIC AT FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH
MUSICA MAXIMA offers three wonderful concerts this fall. We begin with the return appearance of the great Ukrainian organist, Volodymyr Koshuba, on Friday evening, September 26, at 7:30 pm. Mr. Koshuba has performed for us several times in his American tours, and he is always a sensation and a delight. We hope you will come to share in this joyous time. In addition to the music, Mr. Koshuba will be able to speak of the situation in his homeland and in his native city, Kiev.
Another returning artist is Sonia Lee, harpsichordist. An international keyboard artist and President of the Early Keyboard Society of North America, her performances, as we have witnessed here, are virtuosic and compelling. Sunday, October 26 at 3 pm is Sonia’s concert.
The final concert of the year is Sunday, December 21, at 3 pm. I will be joined by the outstanding young organist, Adrian Binkley, as the two of us offer organ masterpieces and seasonal carol singing. Adrian, who has appeared at our church previously, is a senior at the Interlochen Academy for the Arts in Michigan. He has performed and participated in workshops in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Michigan, and in his home state of Wisconsin. I was one of his earlier teachers.
We hope soon to have news of concerts in winter/spring of 2015.
Admission is free to the concerts, but you can help support with a freewill offering, which we receive at each program to help in the expenses of bringing these artists to you.
All ages join in on the fun!
