Free Jardine Organ Concert this Sunday


Victor Fields, director of music and organist at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in York and former organist at First United Methodist Church in Hanover, will present a free, public concert on Sunday, June 24 as part of the Jardine Organ Concert Series at Cross Keys Village - The Brethren Home Community.

Fields also serves as organist and pianist for Temple Beth Israel in York. He is the assistant music director and staff accompanist for the Harrisburg Choral Society and artistic director of the Central Pennsylvania Women's Chorus.

The performance will take place in Nicarry Meetinghouse, beginning at 2:30 p.m. A free-will offering will be taken.

The concert is part of a series highlighting the Cross Keys Jardine organ. That instrument has spent time on both coasts of the United States-it once belonged to the University of Washington. It was rebuilt and enlarged by Brunner and Heller in 1983 after being acquired by York Hospital and moved to the East Coast. It was given to Cross Keys Village - The Brethren Home Community in 1996 and moved into Nicarry Meetinghouse when that facility was built in 2000.

Cross Keys Village - The Brethren Home Community is located at the intersection of U.S. 30 and PA 94 (Cross Keys), less than two miles east of New Oxford's town circle. Directional signage is available at other entrances. Ample free parking is available.
