It’s here! Our 100th-anniversary celebration of our Austin Organ, Op. 1040 will kick off our 15th full season on Sunday, October 9 at 4pm. The first celebration concert will feature F. Allen Artz, III as guest organist. (Please see the enclosed season flyer and the October 9 flyer). There will be some special presentations that day as we express our gratitude to patrons of music here at Trinity and the technicians who keep the organ in good working order. We hope to have a gala reception following this anniversary concert.
The anniversary year will continue with artists who have been featured before and are very supportive of our series. We are thrilled to have a group from Allentown’s Satori Ensemble, the Fyve Woodwind Quintet from Reading and the Copeland String Quartet from Delaware. Please mark all these dates on your calendar.
We anticipate a large audience for the October 9 organ concert and 100th-anniversary celebration. To prepare for this, it is very important that we know what our wonderful cooks and bakers can offer. Please contact Cora as soon as possible at 570-449-7553 or firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm what you may be able to contribute. There will also be a sign-up sheet on the large bulletin board at the bottom of the stairs. Thank you in advance!
A fund for the refurbishment of our Austin organ console is being set up in addition to the January Benefit concert. This project will be very expensive and a perfect opportunity to donate in memory of a loved one or a thanksgiving for blessings. These donations will enable us to continue the great musical tradition at Trinity.
Organ Benefit Concert
Our glorious organ has been working for 100 years with hours of practice, Sunday services, feast days, special services and concerts. As always, with a pipe organ and one of this vintage, small problems can always occur. To help with some of these expenses and to keep the organ in good working order, there will be a special Benefit Concert for the Organ on Sunday, January 29, 2023 (the weather date will be February 5). Tickets will be $15. This concert will include the Grantham Brass Project from Messiah University and Cora Gamelin-Osenbach, soprano accompanied by John Kline, IV at the piano. There may be other performers as well. An exciting post-Christmas concert for the upkeep of our grand 100-year-old instrument. More information will be forthcoming.
