The program also includes a prelude on “O Trinity of Blessed Light” by Bruce Simonds, and “For Us a Child is Born” from Cantata 142 by Johann Sebastian Bach.
This series of free 30 minute concerts is a gift to the community from First Reformed Church, a center city congregation of the United Church of Christ. Only 30 minutes in length, the free concerts begin at 8 PM each First Friday for the convenience of those who wish to spend the early evening visiting downtown galleries before the concert. Doors open at 7:30 pm. All are welcome to hear 30 minutes of inspiring organ music that will refresh your soul and inspire your spirit.
