WESTFIELD –The Friends of Music at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Westfield will present a special concert on Sunday, Nov. 17 at 4 p.m. The concert will showcase St. Paul’s magnificent pipe organ – one of the largest in the northeast region. Included on the program are a variety of works selected to display the unique orchestral and classical voices of the organ. These include Sibelius’ Finlandia, as well as works by Bach, Daquin, Grieg, Manz Schumann and Sullivan.
Charles M. Banks, St. Paul’s director of music and organist, will be joined by concert pianists Pamela Aslin (of Cranford) and Doris La Mar (of Westfield) in duets for piano and organ, including arrangements of “Amazing Grace” and “Simple Gifts.”
Baritone David Murray (of Scotch Plains) will be the soloist in a rarely performed concert version of Sir Arthur Sullivan’s The Lost Chord for soloist, piano & organ.
Following the concert, the public is invited to a wine and appetizer reception in The Cloister.
Concert tickets are not required, but a donation of $20 for adults is suggested to help support St. Paul’s music programs and concerts, which have garnered national recognition for their high quality and appeal. Students K-12-College are admitted at no charge and parking in the area is also free.
