An Afternoon with Eldred Marshall
February 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Organist Eldred Marshall to Dazzle at Bethany
Bethany Lutheran Church of Crystal Lake invites the community to “An Afternoon with Eldred Marshall” on Sunday, February 24 at 3:00 p.m. at 76 W. Crystal Lake Avenue. A classically trained pianist and child prodigy, Eldred first played in public at age seven, winning top prizes in competition. Eldred will perform a variety of styles on Bethany’s wonderful pipe organ and grand piano.
With three Master’s degrees from Southern Methodist University: Piano in 2011, Organ in 2012, and Conducting in 2013, Eldred also graduated from Yale with honors in Political Science. The Press Enterprise of Riverside, CA hailed his “dazzling technique and clean, tidy approach.” He has been described as an “illumination in music” with a “recital that is full of musical thrills and beauties”.
Among the selections for organ and piano are Bach, Debussy, Schumann and Gershwin. Eldred will also perform a jazz improvisation of his own composition on the Bethany Pipe Organ.
Bethany Lutheran Church has a global mission with a downtown Crystal Lake center. Bethany Arts Series presents musical programs to inspire, entertain and engage the community. The concert is hosted by the church with a free will collection. An intermission with refreshments is included.
