Organ recitals to feature hymns written by women
Placeholder Image
MONROE - "Hymn Settings by Women" is the theme for "Midday Masterworks," an organ mini-recital to be presented at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday at the Monroe United Methodist Church, 2227 4th St. and repeated at 5:15 p.m. at St. Victor Church, 1760 14th St. Organist Deborah Krauss Smith will perform the program, which will include arrangements of familiar hymns written by women, including a set of variations on "My Jesus, I Love Thee" by Ann Uresk, the organist at Grace Lutheran Church in Monroe. "Midday Masterworks" is a quarterly Wednesday noon-hour organ mini-recital series that was established in 2002 to feature the Monroe United Methodist Church's 3-manual, 39-rank Berghaus organ. "Midday Masterworks - Reprise," a repeat of the same program later in the day, was added in 2008 to showcase St. Victor Church's new hybrid combination of a Möller pipe and Rodgers digital organ.
