Organization: Westminster Organ Concert Series
Description: The Westminster Organ Concert Series concludes its 38th season on Sunday, April 15, at 4:00 pm, with an organ recital of music of Johann Sebastian Bach by organist Peter Sykes. Mr. Sykes is associate professor of music and chair of the historical performance department at Boston University, and he also serves on the faculty at the Juilliard School of Music in New York. He has given recitals throughout the United States and Europe and has recorded music by Bach, Couperin, Reger, and Holst, among others. The concert is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception.

The Westminster Organ Concert Series was begun in 1980 to share the newly installed all-mechanical baroque-style pipe organ with the community. The organ, built by Taylor & Boody Organbuilders of Staunton, Virginia, has 18 stops and over 1100 pipes.
