Good Shepherd Lenten Organ Recital Series

Good Shepherd OrganGood Shepherd Lutheran Church is sponsoring a Lenten Organ Recital Series with three concerts to be held on three successive Wednesdays, March 12, 19, and 26 in the Sanctuary. The concerts will start at 12:15 and finish by 12:45. A free-will offering will be taken. The opening recital will be played by Brad Schultz, Instructor at Luther College and organist for the Luther congregation on Sunday mornings.

The Hook and Hastings Organ at Good Shepherd was acquired in 2009. This 2-manual, 8-stop, 11-rank organ was built in Boston in 1883 as a parlor organ for use in a private home. Acquired in 1973 by Pastor Paul and Ruth Tweeten, the organ was moved to the Midwest and in 1990 underwent an extensive rebuild by J.C. Taylor Organmakers, in Kaukauna, WI. After being damaged in a storage location, the organ was once again refurbished and restored by Jim Taylor in 2008, prior to its installation at Good Shepherd.

The public is invited to bring brown bag lunches which can be eaten in the Fellowship Hall afterwards. Coffee and light refreshments will be served. For further information contact Brooke Joyce, Good Shepherd Organist and Interim Director of Music, who coordinated this series.
