Event description

Description

First Christian Church in Jefferson City, MO, is excited to announce the first annual concert in the Sam B. Cook Memorial Organ Concert Series, to be held on Sunday, November 18, at 4:00 p.m.

The annual event honors Mr. Sam B. Cook, a member of First Christian Church, as well as a leader and philanthropist in our community, whose generosity made possible the acquisition of a new pipe organ for the church in 2008.

The organ is a three manual, 47-rank instrument built by Quimby Pipe Organs of Warrensburg, MO. Tonal specifications for the instrument were guided by the expertise of company president, Michael Quimby, with consultation by world-renowned organist, Ken Cowan. It was first played in worship on Easter Sunday of 2009 and officially dedicated in June of that same year with a performance by Mr. Cowan.

This year’s concert will be performed by Nathan Laube. In addition to serving as Assistant Professor of Organ on the faculty of the Eastman School of Music, and his new position as International Consultant in Organ Studies at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, UK, Mr. Laube maintains an extensive recital career that includes major venues spanning four continents. He has quickly earned a place among the organ world’s elite performers. His brilliant playing and gracious demeanor have thrilled audiences and presenters across the United States and in Europe, and his creative programming of repertoire spanning five centuries, including his own virtuoso transcriptions of orchestral works, have earned high praise from critics and peers alike.

The concert is free to attend, but a ticket is required due to limited seating. Tickets are available through www.eventbrite.com.

Child care is available for children age 4 and under. A reception in the Family Life Center will follow the concert.
