Organ Recital on May 20
The current Young Organist Collaborative students will play in a recital at Christ Church on Saturday afternoon, May 20th at 2:00 p.m. All are invited to attend this free concert. A reception will follow. The Young Organist Collaborative is a New Hampshire organization dedicated to introducing young musicians to the pipe organ. It does this by awarding scholarships to qualified piano students. First year students receive scholarships for a year of organ lessons and second year students receive scholarships for half their lessons. Formed in 2001, the Collaborative has provided organ lessons to over 120 middle and high school students throughout New Hampshire, northern Massachusetts, and southern Maine. Please join us May 20th to hear these amazing students play!
