Friends of Music Remember Kent S. Dennis
Friends of Music traveled to the Memorial Presbyterian Church (Midland, Michigan) on Sunday, November 11, to hear Dr. Steven Egler, professor of organ at Central Michigan University and Artist in Residence at the First Congregational Church in Saginaw, perform the annual Kent S. Dennis Memorial Organ Recital.
Two hundred people attended the eclectic program that concluded with music by Franck. Donations exceeding $2,100 were received at the event to benefit the Kent S. Dennis Memorial Scholarship Fund, which encourages and enriches the musical education of present and future church or synagogue organists in the region.
The 2012 Kent S. Dennis Memorial Organ Recital was sponsored by the Saginaw Valley Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, First Congregational Church of Saginaw, and the Memorial Presbyterian Church of Midland.
