ELLISVILLE – Kay Guiles, instructor of music at Jones County Junior College and organist, will present an organ recital on Tuesday, September 9, at 1:15 p.m. at First-Trinity Presbyterian Church in Laurel.  The public is welcome to attend this free concert which features Guiles on the pipe-organ which is a 72 rank Aeolian-Skinner with over 4000 pipes and is a magnificent historic instrument used regularly for concerts, as well as worship services.

The thirty minute program will begin with David German's Festive Trumpet Tune, which will feature the impressive festival trumpet in the balcony. The most important organ composer of all time, Johann Sebastian Bach, will be represented by Fantasy and Fugue in C minor, BWV 537. With a look toward our southern heritage, an original composition by Mrs. Guiles, Wayfaring Stranger, based on the Sacred Harp tune of the same name, will be performed. The program will conclude with the powerful Carillon de Westminster by Louis Vierne.
