On Sunday, April 15 at 2:00 p.m., there will be an organ recital in our sanctuary. Jennifer Bower is the current “Artist of the Year” of the Vermont chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Bower will perform works by Bach, Buxtehude, Nadia Boulanger, and others, with some selections accompanied by trumpet player Jim Duncan.
The William A. Johnson organ in our church was installed in 1862 during the Civil War. Half to two-thirds of the 1,200+ pipes are still original! We hope there will be similar concerts in the future that showcase our organ, which, when it was installed, the Middlebury Register proudly called “one of the finest instruments in our state.”
