Featured recitalists include David Baskeyfield, Charles Callahan, Ken Cowan, Scott Dettra, Mark Dwyer, Jelani Eddington, Matthew Lewis, Adam Pajan, Caroline Robinson, Damin Spritzer, and Todd Wilson, with others to be announced at a later date. We will have special presentations featuring this year's guest of honor, concert organist, Albert Russell.
Check back often as we announce the addition of guest recitalists to our schedule.
