Dedicatory Organ Recital, May 9 - Frederick Swann

You will not want to miss Fred Swann’s dedicatory recital on Friday, May 9, at 7:00 p.m.  Open to the public, the suggested $20 donation will help defray the performer’s fee. The Saginaw Valley Chapter of the American Guild of Organists is sponsoring a reception in the church’s Bradley House following the evening’s recital. 

Frederick Swann is past President (2002-2008) of the American Guild of Organists, an organization of over 20,000 members in chapters throughout the United States and several foreign countries. He is Organist Emeritus of the Crystal Cathedral and of the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles, and Artist in Residence at St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Palm Desert, California. Mr. Swann is also University Organist and Artist Teacher of Organ at the University of Redlands.

One reviewer noted that Mr. Swann has probably presided over more ranks of pipes and stopknobs than any other organist in history. This is perhaps true given the size and prominence of the instruments with which his career has been associated: Riverside Church in New York City (1957-1982); The Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove (1982-1998); and, First Congregational Church of Los Angeles (1998-2001).

Take part in this memorable musical happening!
