Organ Recital + Chat
Edward Norman - "The Power of Music - Handling a Potent Gift"

Wednesday, February 22
4:00 - 5:15 pm
Instrumental Music Hall, 2nd floor Music Building

SAMC Music presents an organ recital and chat with Edward Norman, organ instructor at TWU.  Edward reflects on the power of music to shape our emotions and even interpret visual and textual situations – particularly in film and public worship.  How should musicians handle this remarkably powerful gift from God?

The program—played on the organ that Karl Heinz Rose donated to SAMC in 2010—will include pieces by J.S. Bach and contemporary repertoire, pointing to how the composers have authentically submitted their talents to the Lord in His service.

Distinguished concert organist Edward Norman is a music producer at CBC and has played with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra as well as liturgical churches across North America.

A free event hosted by SAMC Music and open to the public – arrive early for the best seat.
