Free concert: St John the Baptist’s Coulter Concert Series presents organist Barbara Baird

The hour-long concert is free to the public and will feature music by Buxtehude, Bach, Mendelssohn, Brahms, and Langlais. With the new expansion of the organ — including the recent addition of horizontal trumpets — the tonal resources of the instrument are stunning!
