Our own Director of Music Ministries, Dr. Jo Deen Blaine Davis, will present a one-hour organ recital in the Meeting House on Friday, November 22 beginning at 7:00pm. The musical program is free and open to the public; a free-will offering will be collected. A gala reception will follow in the church’s Smith Hall; all are welcome.
Jody plans a lively and accessible program which will include music of Bach, Handel, Britten, Copland, Langlais, Vierne, and Widor. This is her eighth year leading the music ministries of The Congregational Church. A Missouri native, Jody holds the bachelor and master degrees in organ performance from Eastman School of Music, and the doctor of musical arts from the University of Kansas.
Said Davis, “I can’t wait to share this wonderful music – which, combined with the setting, will make for a lovely evening.” Davis will present a preview discussion, “Tune In…To Music,” on Wednesday, November 20 at 11:15 a.m. to provide insight into the music of the program. A free lunch will follow.
