The Marion Congregational Church is enjoying an array of guest musicians each Sunday throughout the summer. Beverly Peduzzi, church music director, has invited guest musicians to accompany each worship service while the church choir takes a summer break.
Perhaps you were walking past the church last Sunday, you would have heard the skirl of Sue Maxwell’s bagpipe. Sandy Morgan, pianist & organist and Wendy Rolfe, one of the United States’ leading performers on historical and modern flutes performed in July.
Coming in August will be The Yarmouth Congregational Church Quartet (August 7); Vi Taylor, 1st chair cellist of the Fall River Symphony Orchestra (August 14); Michelle Richardson, popular Marion jazz vocalist (August 21); Phil Sanborn (director of the Tri-County Symphonic Band); Karen Sanborn, (accomplished saxophonist and member of the Tri-County Band) and Laurie Black (talented pianist) will perform as an instrumental ensemble (August 28.)
The FCCM summer music program will continue in September beginning with Kathy McWilliams (graduate of the New England Conservatory), bassoonist (September 4.)
The community is invited to the services beginning at 10 am. You may even sit in the churchyard to enjoy the music and join the lively chat and coffee at the Congo Café following worship.
