Music lovers, mark your calendars...

We are pleased to announce that, after a very successful inaugural year, our parish will once again host a Music Series. The first event will take place on Saturday October 4th at 7:30 PM. Our featured artist will be world-renowned French organist Pierre Pincemaille. Monsieur Pincemaille serves as Titular Organist of the Cathedral/Basilica of Saint-Denis, in Paris, France. In addition, he teaches harmony at the prestigious French music school, the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris. He has toured widely as both a recitalist and orchestral soloist in Europe, North America, Russia, China, and South Africa, and performing under the batons of conductors such as Mstislav Rostropovitch, Myung Whun Chung, Riccardo Muti, and Charles Dutoit.

Monsieur Pincemaille’s recital will feature works of Bach, Franck, Vierne, and Durufle, as well as his own improvisations, all performed on our magnificent Casavant pipe organ.
