Spooky concert benefit planned
By Carolyn B. Edwards BCC Staff Writer
First Presbyterian Church of Kerrville will host a free spooky concert to raise funds for the church's mission programs and the Multiple Sclerosis Society on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 19 and 20, at 7 pm.
The program features a screening of the 1926 silent film, "Phantom of the Opera," with Tim Wilborn, organist.
Wilborn will follow with a selection of masterworks for the organ, including "Toccata and Fugue" by Bach. The Symphony of the Hills Brass Quartet will play Mussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain." Amy Goodyear's dramatic reading of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven," accompanied by violinist CJ Goodyear, provides a chilling change of pace.
The program comes to a spine tingling close with Andrew Lloyd Weber's "The Phantom" sung by soprano Sara Lohmeyer.
A reception will follow the concert.
A free will offering will be divided 25 percent for the church's mission projects and 75 percent for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
First Presbyterian is located at 800 Jefferson in Kerrville.
