    Crawford Wiley in Concert

    Bach's Clavierübung III is the pinnacle of his writing for the organ,

    a contrapuntal masterpiece, and also—perhaps more enticingly—desperately beautiful music,

    endlessly dancing through joy and grief.


    Come hear Crawford,St. Jude’s Director of Liturgy and Music,

    play the whole thing(well, almost—he'll explain)on our glorious Schantz organ.

    The concert is free and open to the public.

    St. Paul, Grafton, Organ Dedication Concert


    After two phases over 14 years, St. Paul Lutheran Church at 701 Washington St. in Grafton, WI is dedicating their organ with a free Dedication Concert Saturday, Sept. 14 at 7pm. 

    Installed by Brook Falls Organ & Piano Company of West Bend, WI, it is an Allen Combination Pipe & Digital Organ which includes 80 pull stops which can play 320 digital sounds and 23 rocker stops for about 17 ranks of pipes. The failing Verlinden pipe organ was replaced in 2007 by the digital Allen console and speakers. A second phase was always planned to add more pipes to the seven ranks which were kept. A renovation of the sanctuary and raising funds delayed the completion of phase two until 2019.

    The completed organ will be dedicated at the evening’s worship service followed by the Dedication Concert. An appetizer buffet will be served between worship and the concert. The concert will feature national award-winning recitalist, Dr. Brenda (Heck) Portman and includes St. Paul’s Handbell Choir which is celebrating its 40th anniversary.


    A daughter of the congregation, Dr. Portman was a Finalist and Audience Prize winner in the Sursa American Organ Competition at Ball State University in 2016. She also composes sacred choral, vocal, and organ works and has won several recent composition awards. She has been commissioned to write a new solo work for the 2020 American Guild of Organists (AGO) convention. This concert will debut her arrangement of the hymn Alleluia! Sing to Jesus for congregation, choir, and brass.

    Celebrate with us in worship, fellowship, and song on Saturday, Sept. 14 at 7pm at St. Paul Lutheran Church. Contact music@splgrafton.org with any questions.

    Dear music lovers,

    St. Marcus Lutheran Church is excited about launching our first-ever fine arts series. We’d like to invite members of your congregation to our inaugural event.

    On Friday evening, September 27, 7:00 p.m., organist David Porth will present a concert on the newly rebuilt St. Marcus pipe organ. Mr. Porth is the organist at Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Menomonee Falls and recently completed his master’s program in church music at Concordia University-Wisconsin where he studied with Dr. James Freese.

    The program will include pieces old and new and will be augmented by choirs, brass, and percussion.

    The St. Marcus organ was recently expanded with the addition of 13 new ranks of pipes and now produces a truly thrilling sound. A reception will follow to which you are all invited. We hope you can come and enjoy the music.

    Your friend in Christ,

    Mark A. Jeske

    St. Marcus senior pastor
