Here is the September, 2016 Chronicle:
“The Colors of the Organ”
The final summer concert of the “Sundays at 4” series at Christ Episcopal Church (Eureka) will be on Sunday, August 28, at 4:00 pm. “The Colors of the Organ,” will feature three local organists performing music that displays the unique and individual tonal colors of the Kegg pipe organ. The concert is free and open to the public. Free-will donations are gratefully accepted and will be used to support future concerts. The church is located on the corner of 15th and H Streets in Eureka. Off-street parking is available at the corner of 14th and G Streets. Handicapped accessible entrance to the sanctuary is on 15th Street, between G and H Streets, through the parish hall.
From J.S. Bach to “Blues on the Flues,” you will have an opportunity hear about the different ranks of pipes on the Kegg organ – each with its own unique tone quality and ‘color.’ Much as an artist uses color in painting, composers for the pipe organ use tone color to convey their message in the music they write and the program will feature music which demonstrates the diverse capability of sound of the pipe organ. You will hear ranks of pipes that are easily recognizable to the ear (e.g., flutes, reeds, strings), as well as sounds of diapasons, mixtures, and the unique sounds of Chimes and Zimbelstern.
Performing on the Kegg organ will be three local organists: Gary K. Klemp, Organist at the Eureka Seventh-day Adventist Church, Douglas Moorehead, Organist Emeritus at Christ Episcopal Church, and Merry Phillips, Organist at Christ Episcopal Church. All three organists are members of the American Guild of Organists (AGO) and have served as officers of the local Sequoia Chapter of the AGO.
Please join us for this informal, educational, and (only!) one-hour long concert. It will be a great opportunity to learn about the 31-rank Kegg pipe organ (installed in 2008) and hear music from its 1,917 pipes. Bring the family and/or friends and enjoy a delightful end to the weekend. For directions or questions visit: https://christchurcheureka.org/contact/
