Organ dedication, 3:00 pm, Sunday, 9 June 2013

The Dedicatory Recital
The Ahlborn-Galanti Organ
The Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross
51 W Main Street
North East, Pennsylvania
Sunday, 9 June 2013 at 3:00 pm

     At 3 o’clock on Sunday, June 9, Washington, DC area organist Lynn Allen Dean will dedicate new Ahlborn-Galanti organ, just installed, at The Episcopal Church of the Holy Cross in North East, PA. Lynn is a friend of the parish who worships at Holy Cross when he comes to North East on vacation each summer. The rest of the time he is organist and director of music ministries at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Fulton, Maryland.
     Lynn holds degrees in Music Performance and Liturgical Music from the Catholic University of America and the Oblate College, and has also studied at Westminster Choir College and in Paris, France. He has played for services and in recital at the National Cathedral and many other locations. Lynn lives in Olney, MD with his wife Mary Kay; they have two grown daughters and a pug puppy.
     We are delighted that Lynn has agreed to play for us as we dedicate the new organ in honor of Harold Page, who has led us in worship for so long, and in gratitude to Neal Durchman, who has masterminded the project from the beginning. Lynn’s program is designed to exploit many of the vast possibilities of our new organ. It features music from many centuries, and opportunities for the congregation to join him in hymns. We hope that everyone will come and celebrate this great day. +
