On Sunday, 8 November at 4:30 p.m. at the First Parish of Bolton, new director of music Alexander Lane will present a free concert of major Bach works on the Rev. Joseph N. Pardee Memorial Organ. The concert celebrates the beginning of the church's 275th anniversary year, and the 20th anniversary of the ministry of Rev. Richard F. Jones, who was installed on 6 November 1995. He is now the fourth-longest serving minister in the town's history.
Mr. Lane will perform Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV565; Prelude and Fugue, "St. Anne," in E-flat Major, BWV552; Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 582; Fantasia and Fugue in C minor, BWV 537; and Prelude and Fugue in A minor, BWV 543. A native of Hobe Sound, Florida, Alexander Lane graduated from the Westminster Choir College, Princeton, New Jersey, studying organ with Ken Cowan, and received an MFA from Brandeis University where he is now completing doctoral studies.
At the end of the concert, Rev. Jones will be recognized for his years of ministry and a reception in Howard P. Davis Hall will follow the concert. All are welcome to attend.
