The Church of Saint John the Beloved (28 Sumter Ave, downtown Summerville) is pleased to present organist Dr. David Friddle in recital as part of the 2013-14 St. John the Beloved Concert Series.
The concert is set for Sunday, May 4 at 4 p.m.
Friddle is the current music director and organist at St. John the Beloved, beginning his position in the spring of 2013. This is his first concert as a soloist in Summerville since taking the position.
Friddle is a native of Greenville, SC and has created an impressive resume as a performer, choral conductor, and academic through his studies and accomplishments. In addition to organist and choral conductor, Friddle is also a composer and author with published works in composition and academia.
His recital program will feature established favorites by composers such as J.S. Bach, Franz Liszt, and Frank Bridge, as well as newer works by Charles Callahan and Paul Manz. A special highlight on the program will be Louis Vierne’s “Carillon” (from the ringing bells of the chapel of the Longpont château) from his Twenty-Four Pieces in a Free Style for Organ or Harmonium.
This special concert is sponsored by the organ-builders, Peragallo Pipe Organ Company of Patterson, NJ and series donors.
St. John the Beloved has a Peragallo Pipe Organ - Opus 591 built in 1997. More information on the organ can be found at www.peragallo.com.
This program is given as a gift to the community through the SJB Concert Series. A suggested donation of $10 will help to continue to support the concert series.
Patrons should pay as they able; those who cannot donate are still warmly welcomed. For more information, contact St. John the Beloved Music at 873-0631, ext. 15.
