Join us for an evening of entertainment provided by our own, Bart Ghent. Bart will be presenting hymns and gospel favorites with other musicians from Christ UMC. This will include organ/piano duets and soloists with organ accompaniment as well as organ solos. We will continue our organ series, as we commemorate the 10th anniversary of our Reuter Pipe Organ. We will stream this event live, and have a bulletin for download, and online viewing, so that you can follow along with Bart.


This concert will be available for later viewing on our Vimeo page, and on our Facebook Page.

For more information, contact Bart Ghent.

The Reuter Company was selected to build our pipe organ because of the sound and capability of their instruments, their availability to meet our time schedule, their competitive price, and their company’s reputation for quality and service. All Reuter organs are custom made to specification. Reuter fabricates most organ components, including pipes, in their factory.

The organ was dedicated in September of 2010 with Olivier Latry from the Cathedral de Notre Dame in Paris as the organist. Other organists featured in concerts have been: Bradley Welch, Dong-ill Shin, Hector Guzman, Christopher Houlihan, Isabelle Demers, Scott Montgomery, and Nathan Laube. The organ also leads our congregation in worship during each Sunday traditional service.

A recording of the organ by Scott Montgomery, ORGANO PLANO (Music for A Joyous Occasion) is available on the Raven label or contact Traci McHenry. The organ has also been featured on the syndicated PIPE DREAMS public radio broadcast.
