In May 2005, the Goshen College Music Center dedicated its new Taylor and Boody pipe organ, “Opus 41.” Now, 10 years later, the public is invited to celebrate its anniversary with a recital as part of the Rieth Chamber Series. GC organ instructor Kevin Vaughn will present an anniversary recital on Sunday, May 10 at 4 p.m. in the Music Center’s Rieth Recital Hall.
Kansas organist Carrie Groenewold will open Goshen College’s inaugural Rieth Chamber Series with an organ recital in Rieth Recital Hall on Sunday, Sept. 15. The concert begins at 4 p.m. and will be performed on Goshen’s acclaimed Taylor and Boody pipe organ.
Bradley Lehman, a Goshen native and a 1986 Goshen College graduate, has solved the centuries-old mystery of what appeared to be an arbitrarily scribbled design on an original copy of one of J.S. Bach’s compositions. The results have significant ramifications for the world of music history, performance, theory and instrument building.
Since the public dedication in October 2002, the award-winning $24-million Goshen College Music Center has been humming with activity with regular concerts by world-class musicians, performances by Goshen College instrumental and vocal groups, as well as recitals from students enrolled in Community School of the Arts programs. But one piece of the ensemble, if you will, has been missing –– until now.
