The final event for the 2003-2004 season will be a pipe organ concert given by Peter DuBois of New York. This event, sponsored by the Chapter and The Congregational Church, is also in celebration of Rochester's Sesquicentennial year. Mr. DuBois will bring greetings from William A. Johnson, Jr., mayor of Rochester, New York to our mayor, Ardell Brede.
The cornerstone of the program will feature the newly enlarged 3/35 Reuter pipe organ upon which Mr. DuBois will present a stunning program.
