What a delight it was to host Organist Katherine Crosier here at St. John’s on Saturday, March 22nd. With a program of works ranging from the wedding music from Downton Abbey; a French Baroque suite, J. S. Bach’s last compositions, The Great Eighteen Chorales, and works by American composers, concert-goers were in for a real treat. Ms. Crosier was also joined by trumpeter, Cody Sarmiento, who added a beautiful dimension to the evening.

The concert celebrated the restoration of the Oberlinger organ, and Ms. Crosier dedicated the concert to the memory of Dr. John Hanley, his wife Claire Frances “Cancy,” and son Paul who were former parishioners of St. John’s who spearheaded the instrument’s installation. Many thanks to all who participated for making this a delightful evening in Keokea.
