Organ Jubilee - please confirm participation by Dec. 28

FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH ORGAN JUBILEE

Dr. James Yeager, organist and Director of Music, will perform with us to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of First Presbyterian Church’s pipe organ, one of the largest in the state.  Throughout Dr. Yeager’s career, he produced and recorded several CDs, regularly toured Europe, founded the performing arts series called i Fiori Musicali, presented workshops as an expert on sacred music and continues performing and teaching nationally. It is an honor to be invited to participate in this concert and will be a wonderful experience performing this unique repertoire.
