As Countryside’s new pipe organ, John-Paul Buzard Pipe Organ Builders Opus 47, nears completion, we are excited to announce an opportunity for you to hear the instrument in all its glory. While the circumstances under which we are introducing the organ to our congregation are slightly different than we expected, we have worked with the re-opening task force to offer a series of small in-person concerts. Each concert will be the same, so RSVP for the one that fits with your schedule best. These concerts will be limited in size, and all the appropriate precautions taken (socially distant seating, masks, limited amount of time in shared space, etc.).
We will have a dedication and inaugural recital when we have an opportunity to pack the house again. For anyone who does not feel comfortable attending these events in person, we will be recording one of them and will make it available as a DVD. There will also be a Halloween Organ Concert livestreamed on Friday, October 30, at 7 PM. If you have trouble with making reservations on the link you can call the church office at 402.391.0350 to make a reservation.
Eric will be in attendance at all but the October 25 concert and will be available afterward to greet you safely, allowing you the opportunity to give your thanks and best wishes in person. Melanie will be joining Eric on October 21, 28 and November 1.
