Jan Kraybill solo organ concert: "Joining Voices"
Rescheduled from my COVID-defined 2020-21 season! I'm pleased to perform a recital sponsored by the Fox Valley chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Visit https://foxvalleyago.org/chapter-events/ to learn about their 2021-2022 program year, and scroll down to the bottom of the page to view details about this season finale. Admission to the concert is free!
As the world is slowly recovering from the effects of the global pandemic, a lesson to take forward is that to freely take a breath, and then to speak or to break into song, is something to treasure. This program celebrates the many diverse voices of St. Michael's unique organ and the glorious diversity of the human community.
