Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church is pleased to present organist William Kuhlman in an evening concert on July 22 at 7 pm. The program will include works by J. S. Bach, Johannes Brahms, Charles Callahan, Norberto Guinaldo, Sigfrid Kart-Elert, Myron Roberts, Leo Sowerby, Louis Vierne and more.
Critics have hailed Kuhlman as “a world-class performer” whose playing “communicates musical purpose and excitement.” His passion for his art is reflected in a 40-year teaching and performing career that has spanned a broad range of activities, from concerts with the Dallas and Philadelphia Brass and Chicago Symphony Trumpeter Adolph Herseth, solo recitals in the cathedrals of Trondheim, Rotterdam and Vienna, and publication of his scholarly work in the national organ journals, The Diapason and The American Organist.
Following retirement, he was awarded an honorary membership in Phi Beta Kappa, and was named Professor and College Organist Emeritus of Luther College, where he worked for 38 years.
The concert is offered free to the public and a reception follows the performance. A freewill offering will be accepted to support the musical programs presented by the Concert Series at Shepherd.
Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church is located at the top of the hill in Ellison Bay. For more information, call 920.854.2988 or visit shepherdofthebay.org.
