Oct 30 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm

Beginning Thursday, October23 at 12:00 noon, and continuing for five weeks Grace Episcopal Church in Hopkinsville will be hosting their fourth Music at Midday programs.  These are series of organ recitals on their historic Estey Pipe Organ.  They will be approximately 15 minutes in length.  Grace Church organist Stephen Wiggin will perform a program of music based on popular hymns for the first program.

Other organists from the area will be featured on successive programs:  Wayne Eastham will play October 30, Rich Barnett on November 6 and Dan Wilkinson will perform November 13.  Wiggin will provide the final program on November 20.

The pipe organ at Grace Church was installed in 1906.  It was a gift of John C Latham, Jr., in memory of his mother, Virginia, a long-time member of the Grace Church choir.

The organ was totally rebuilt in 2009 by the Milnar Organ Company of Eagleville, Tennessee.  It consists of over 850 pipes, divided into 15 sets, playable from three keyboards, two played by hands and one by feet.  Pipes vary in size from the smallest, about the size of a pencil, to the largest, pipes made of wood that are about a foot square and close to ten feet tall.

These programs are open to the public.
