Griffin: First United Methodist Church and First Baptist Church To Host Five Free Pipe Organ Concerts

Celebrated organist Cj Sambach will be performing "The Pipe Organ INformance," at the First Baptist Church, 106 West Taylor at Hill Streets, on Friday (2/13) at 10AM and 1PM. Performing on the 2,000-pipe Schantz organ, these two concerts are planned as field trip/assembly programs for area schools, but are also open to the public. That evening at 7PM a reprise of his “INformance” concert will be offered to the general public.

The following, Sunday, February 15, at 9:45AM, Maestro Sambach will present his "INformance" during the morning Sunday School hour at First United Methodist Church, 1401 Maple Drive. That afternoon at 2PM, Sambach will present a full-length, formal organ concert on the church’s 2,076-pipe M. P. Möller/A. E. Schleuter organ.

Nicknamed "The Pied-Piper of the Pipe Organ," Cj Sambach has a spent a lifetime encouraging and promoting a greater appreciation for the “King of Instruments.”

Organ performance is his greatest love and sharing this love with audiences everywhere is his principal enjoyment. Combining bits of humor with interesting explanations and fine musicianship, he makes the music and the organ fun for people of all ages.

“It is always a thrill to watch the faces of children experience the magnificence and grandeur of the mighty pipe organ,” says Maestro Sambach.

In the five Griffin programs, Maestro Sambach will explore the instrument’s vast tonal resources, present captivating musical compositions, and explain the many fascinating facets of “The King of Instruments.”

The entire family will enjoy these free programs.
