Organist Ruth Tweeten returns to northeast Wisconsin to present a concert of solo organ music on Sunday, July 25 at 7 pm at Shepherd of the Bay Lutheran Church in Ellison Bay.
Active as a recitalist, Ruth Tweeten has played concerts around the world. Her concerts have been heard on Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Boston Public Radio as well as the ضRF in Austria, where she was featured in the Vienna Summer Music Festival.
Tweeten’s concert will feature classical organ repertoire, selected to highlight the church’s tracker pipe organ, built by Dobson Organbuilders of Lake City, Iowa. Among the selections chosen for this program are a set of variations by the Baroque master J. S. Bach as well as a more contemporary rendition of the familiar “Jesus Loves Me” by American composer William Bolcom.
Formerly a resident of the area, Tweeten was University Organist and Organ Instructor at the University of Wisconsin in Green Bay for 13 years. Active as a musician at churches in the greater Fox Valley, she held posts at Bethel Lutheran Church in Green Bay as well as First English Lutheran Church in Appleton.
A reception to greet the artist will follow the concert. There is no admission charge, though a free-will offering will be collected. For more information call 920.854.2988.
