A Homecoming Recital

On Saturday, December 8 at 3pm, I will play an organ recital in my hometown of Hanover, PA (USA), which is near Gettysburg, an hour from Harrisburg and a little more than an hour from Baltimore. The recital will take place at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, whose people have been quite good and supportive to me over the years. St. Mark's has a wonderful J.W. Steere organ from the early 20th century; it is one of the finest organs in that area. It is personally my favorite instrument out there.

Here is the program, which I might note is still technically in the draft stage:

David German: Festive Trumpet Tune
Brahms: selections from the Chorale Preludes, Op. 122
Reger: Benedictus, Op. 59, Nr. 9
Bach: Fantasia and Fuge in G minor, BWV 542
Franck: Chorale III in A minor
Couperin: Offertoire from the Mass for the Parishes
Messiaen: Le Banquet Celeste
Apparition de l'Eglise Eternelle
Bach: Nun komm der Heiden Heiland (coloratura from the Leipzig MS)
Vierne: Final from Symphony Nr. 1

If you're in the area, please do come to this and be sure to introduce yourself to me afterwards.
