Zach Klobnak organistZach Klobnak: Celebrating 15 Years of the Taylor & Boody Pipe Organ
Wednesday, Dec. 17
Do you love organ music?  Have you ever wondered: What are all those knobs on the organ?  What do the words and numbers next to them mean?  How can one instrument play so loudly and so softly?  What is the keyboard for that sits at the organist’s feet?  If so, then this Lunch with the Arts presentation is for you!


Held at the Presbyterian Church of Danville (500 W. Main Street), Zach Klobnak will give an overview of the church’s Taylor and Boody, Opus 35, pipe organ, and demonstrate it with music of Johann Sebastian Bach as well as some holiday favorites.  The instrument was installed in the church sanctuary in 1999 and has led the congregation in worship, accompanied soloists and ensembles, and heard in recital many times during those 15 years.  Join us, learn more about the “King of Instruments,” and explore one of the finest European-inspired pipe organs in this part of the country!

$10. Register now (or by Monday, Dec. 15) to receive a boxed lunch, or pay $5 at the door and bring your own meal. Note: this program will take place at the Presbyterian Church of Danville, 500 W. Main Street.
