PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - The Immanuel Baptist Church will dedicate their new pipe organ during a free recital Sunday, Feb. 19 at 3 p.m.
The recital will feature Joyce Jones, professor of music and organ at Baylor University. She has given concerts in 47 states and 12 other countries, including venues such as the Mormon Tabernacle and Notre Dame Cathedral. Jones holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Texas and a Master of Sacred Music degree in composition from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
While in Paducah, Jones will provide music appreciation workshops for students and an organ seminar for organists.
The featured instrument is a three-manual Casavant organ with 38 ranks and 32 stops. Its 2,260 pipes blend elegantly in the recently-renovated sanctuary's chancel.
