magnificent Advent and Christmas music for three consecutive Wednesdays in December
BREVARD COUNTY • SUNTREE, FLORIDA – The 36-rank pipe organ at Advent Lutheran Church in Suntree will swell with magnificent Advent and Christmas music for three consecutive Wednesdays in December in a series of 12-noon “mini-concerts” at 7550 North Wickham Road.
Three respected Central Florida organists will play the A.E. Schlueter organ of 2,196 pipes, performing works for the holiday season on December 5, 12 and 19.
The Wednesday lunchtime program on December 5 will be performed by guest organist Neal Campbell, the director of music and organist for Trinity Episcopal Church in Vero Beach.
The noon program on Dec. 12 will feature the pipe organ and a small orchestra of oboe, flute, violin and piano, along with songs by local soprano, Beth Green.
And on December 19, Advent Lutheran Church’s own organist, Betty Jo Couch will present a noon concert of traditional Christmas favorites — some arranged for audience “sing-along.”
Each concert will be followed by seasonal refreshments in the narthex for attendees.
Betty Jo Couch, Advent Lutheran Church Organist and Choir Director, plays the A.E. Schlueter pipe organ each week and is delighted to welcome the guest organists for performances on the magnificent instrument.
“Our A.E. Schlueter organ has a reputation for musical beauty in Central Florida,” said Couch. “We are happy to share the spirit of Christmas during the Advent season in these free December concerts.”
The mini-concerts are free to the public with no tickets required. For more information, visit AdventBrevard.org or call 321-426-9378.
