Organist Gregory Eaton’s Farewell Concert
Jun 15, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Gregory Eaton, Organist and Director of Music at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church for 21 years, will present a Farewell Concert to honor and thank the many people who have supported his Wednesday lunchtime recitals, numerous fundraising concerts and music ministry over the years. Through his efforts, Mr. Eaton has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of the maintenance and restoration of the historic church and landmark E.M Skinner organ he plays. The concert is open and free to the public. A reception will follow the concert.
Mr. Eaton is well known for his mastery of the organ and his superb musicianship. He has composed both sacred and secular works for organ and choir and has arranged and transcribed orchestral and chamber works. His popular transcriptions of music by Scott Joplin have been published. Mr. Eaton is an accomplished choir conductor and has led church choirs, including St. Ann’s, each Sunday in performing a rich and varied musical liturgy.
The program will include favorites that have delighted Mr. Eaton’s audiences and reflect his wide-ranging musical repertoire of over 600 musical works from the 15th century to the present.
