Join us Friday, October 1 at 7:00 pm at St. Marcus for a concert featuring organist Sam Eatherton.
The concert will be called "Lord Jesus Christ, Be Present Now," and it will include music of Bach, Telemann, and Mendelssohn.
Samuel Eatherton is the Kantor at Trinity Lutheran Church and School in Sheboygan, Wisconsin where his duties include leading the Church’s song from the organ, directing the musicians of the Church, and teaching music to the children of the school. From 2000-2020, Sam served as Minister of Music at Zion Lutheran Church and School in Dallas, Texas. He and his wife Lois previously served at Trinity Lutheran Church and School in St. Joseph, Michigan.
Sam earned his Bachelor of Science in Education from Concordia University—Nebraska and his Master of Church Music from Concordia University—Chicago. In 2019, he earned his Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Church Music from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, studying with Isabelle Demers and David W. Music. His scholarly interests include the formation of children through church music, 19th century Lutheran hymnals, and organ music of the German Baroque.
The St. Marcus Fine Arts Series launched in September of 2019 shortly after the rebuild of its spectacular 34-rank pipe organ. The series aims at bringing together the greater community to hear notable music by expert talent. Concerts take place in the beautiful church sanctuary built in 1913, with its wonderful acoustics. Concerts are followed by a beer and wine reception to visit with artists and fellow attendees. Concerts are free and open to the community.
Fine Arts Series Committee Members: Joel Schwartz, Mark Jeske, Lenny Hanson, Jerry Seigmann, Alex Randazzo and David Porth
