JCJC faculty and students hold organ concert

ELLISVILLE, MS (JONES COUNTY JUNIOR COLLEGE) - The historic First-Trinity Presbyterian Church will be the setting for an organ concert presented by Jones County Junior College faculty and students.   JCJC organ and piano instructor, Kay Guiles, will be joined by three of her sophomore students, Ryan Turner and Mary Laura Boyett from Laurel, and Hebron's Angel Marie Hatten. The public is invited to the free concert on Monday, January 31, at 7 p.m. at the Laurel church.

The performance features one of the world's finest pipe organs.  The 1968 Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ is an instrument of four manuals and 75 ranks, and is a musical treasure in this area.  The pipe organ concert will feature music from composers Boëllmann, Bruhns, Du Mage, J.S. Bach, and Gigout.   A transcription of Samuel Barber's beloved "Adagio for Strings" will be performed as well as the thrilling "Carillon", by Marcel Dupré, who was a prolific French composer and organist who once performed at Laurel's First-Trinity. 

For more information about the JCJC music program or the recital call the Fine Arts department at 601-477-4094.
