Tuesday, October 10: pianist Joseph Schenk will entertain us with an evening of “All Hallows Eve”. Joseph is a graduate of the Juilliard School and Westminster Choir College. Known for playing a large variety of crowd-pleasing music on the piano and organ from memory, he will employ those skills in our evening’s entertainment. The musical celebration will begin at the grand piano with a variety of seasonal selections and finish with an illumination of the majesty of the organ. A special inclusion will be a musical improvisation accompaniment to, and unknown to him, classic silent film.
