Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church, 11836 Hwy 42 in Ellison Bay, will host organist Mark Mummert in a free concert on July 20, 7 pm. He’ll perform works by J.S. Bach, Dietrich Buxtehude, Johannes Brahms, Janet Correll, Aaron Davis Miller, Gerald Near, Ned Rorem and Charles-Marie Widor on the church’s 23-rank Dobson tracker pipe organ.
Mummert is a busy cantor at Trinity Lutheran Church in Worcester, Massachusetts, and he has played internationally as an organist. He composed the first musical setting of Holy Communion in Evangelical Lutheran Worship, the commended worship book of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
A reception will follow the performance, and a free-will offering will support Shepherd of the Bay’s concert series.
