CELEBRATE THE ARTS

From our Director of Music and the Arts

Welcome to our 2019-2020 Celebrate the Arts Series! As the new Director of Music and the Arts at Doylestown Presbyterian Church, I’m excited to share in these wonderful musical offerings with you. In 2020, we are excited to welcome Amsterdam-born violinist Tosca Opdam, as well as a return appearance by the Hofstra University Chamber Choir. Our season continues with a unique concert of organ duo music presented by Eri Takeguchi and DPC’s own Mina Choi. An experience for the eyes as much as the ears, come and see how Eri and Mina coordinate their four hands and four feet on our magnificent 52-rank Schantz organ!

Celebrate the Arts (CTA) is funded solely through donations and free-will offerings. If you value the many ways CTA benefits our congregation and the community at large, I ask that you consider making a donation. If you have supported Celebrate the Arts in the past, I thank you for your continuing sponsorship and hope that you will join us again this year.
You can donate online at http://bit.ly/2fenIXT, entering your donation under “Celebrate the Arts.”
I look forward to enjoying these musical offerings with you this season!
