We will debut the restored voice of the Liberty United Methodist Church’s 100 year old pipe organ with a concert featuring the nationally renowned organist, Dr. Ruth Green. Dr. Green will perform classical, spiritual and gospel organ music on this treasured and historical instrument that belongs to the whole community in Liberty and, indeed, Sullivan County.
Retired, Dr Green was the organist for the St. John’s Congregational Church in Springfield MA and a Dean and Professor at Mount Holyoke College. Inspired through her travels and teachings in Europe and Africa, she passionately believes in the transformative power of the arts and is a spokeswoman for the legacy of Negro Spirituals. She is returning to the East Coast after a recent performance in Los Angeles.
This event is the second in a series of cultural events sponsored by the Liberty United Methodist Church and in support of the full restoration of Liberty’s pipe organ. The 90 minute concert will begin at 4pm on Saturday, February 18. Admission is $5 per individual or $10 per family. Individuals and families of all ages are welcome to join in this evening of soul stirring music.
