To invoke an old Southern expression, Dr. Bradley Hunter Welch plays the organ “like nobody’s business.” Between the virtuosity of his playing and his easy-going spoken commentary, Dr. Welch is certain proof that the terms, entertainer and organist are not mutually exclusive.
And this Sunday evening at 7:00 pm in the UCC Sanctuary, you will have the rare opportunity to see this world-class virtuoso perform against a backdrop of not one, but three top notch chancel choirs, including our own Choral Union directed by Robert Stovall.As we have witnessed in our own Sanctuary performances by Dr. Welch, he is a delightful and personable concert organist who has been hailed as “an expert at defining darks, lights, shadows, and colors.” Dr. Welch is increasingly in demand as a recitalist, concerto soloist, and collaborative artist and is currently serving as the Resident Organist at the Meyerson Symphony Center and Artist-in-Residence at Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church, both in Dallas.
In this very special performance and concert, you’ll be thrilled to hear this unique combination of the talents of Bradley Hunter Welch with UCC Chancel Choir, First United Methodist Church of Fort Worth Choral Union, and First Presbyterian Church Chancel Choir.
This event is co-sponsored by the Fort Worth Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. As with all Belltower Series events, admission is free. An offering will be collected to support future musical performances at UCC.
The concert is free; an opportunity to make an offering will be available to benefit future concert performances at UCC. Get there early — seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
