Ebony, Ivory & Spruce Trio in concert, March 29

Beneath the blanket of cold, white snow and persistent grey skies, Spring only slumbers. The Ebony Ivory and Spruce (EIS) Trio will offer a concert, “Waking Spring,” to usher in the season of warmth and vibrant color.

With David Methner on clarinet/saxophone (Ebony), Dr. Charles Kemper on piano (Ivory), and Nathan Wilson on violin/mandolin (Spruce), “Waking Spring” will include newly arranged pieces by Edvard Grieg, Lili Boulanger, Joaquin Turina, and Claude Debussy. The Trio also plans to add spring-themed jazz pieces.

Tickets ($15) available at the door (cash, check, or credit) and through Eventbrite.

Organ Concert and Demonstration Program

Sunday February 28, 2016 | The Educational Outreach Committee of the Twin Cities Chapter of the American Guild of Organists presented an introductory program on the pipe organ, using a small demonstration organ. This was an entertaining learning experience for children and adults. 

Sunday March 6, 2016, at 4:00 Our organist, Geoff Olson, gave an organ concert to celebrate the 100th anniversary of our pipe organ. The music included a specially commissioned piece by Aaron David Miller call the Doxology suite based on the hymn tune “Old Hundredth.” The free-will offering benefited our organ fund.
