Dr. Delbert Disselhorst, Professor Emeritus of Organ at the University of Iowa, will be featured in concert on Sunday, May 4, at 4:00pm, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 1330 13th Street, Moline, Illinois.  The program includes works by Sigfrid Karg-Elert, Helmut Walcha, Felix Mendelssohn, and J.S. Bach.

This concert is the opening program in a trio of organ recitals in 2014 celebrating the 40th anniversary of the dedication of Trinity’s pipe organ.  Handcrafted by the Canadian firm of Casavant Frères, the organ was dedicated March 17, 1974.  Designed using principles of organ construction dating back four centuries, Trinity’s Casavant organ resembles organs of Baroque Europe at the time of great organists such as Buxtehude, Sweelinck, and J.S. Bach.  The organ has 32 stops, comprised of 2050 pipes, spread over 3 keyboard divisions and pedal.  The Casavant opus 3200 organ at Trinity Lutheran Church was the first of its kind in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois and remains a premiere instrument for the presentation of music by J.S. Bach and his contemporaries.

Delbert Disselhorst holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Illinois, and the Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Michigan.  He was a recipient of a Fulbright grant in organ, studying with Helmut Walcha at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.  As a concert artist, Disselhorst has performed nationally throughout the United States, and internationally in Canada, Europe, and Korea.

This 4:00pm concert is free, and Trinity Lutheran Church invites the public to attend.

Trinity Lutheran Church is located at 1330 13th Street, Moline, Illinois.  For additional information contact the church at (309) 762-3624, or visit www.tlcmoline.org

Davenport, IA-The Quad City Symphony Orchestra and WVIK-Quad Cities NPR are presenting Trio 826, a string trio including QCSO Principal Cellist Hannah Holman, as the fifth installment of their Signature Series. Trio 826 will be performing trios by composers that have a connection to the holocaust, either by being persecuted or helping the resistance. Trio 826 is performing on Sunday, April 13, at 3:00 p.m. at the Tri-City Jewish Center in Rock Island. This performance is presented by the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities.

Trio 826 is comprised of Susanna Klein, violin; Hannah Holman, cello; and Julia Bullard, viola. The program will feature music by Gideon Klein, Hans Krasa, Ernst Krenek, Erno Dohnanyi, and Felix Mendelssohn. Trio 826 will be joined by Dr. Stephen J. Gaies, Director of the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education and Professor of Languages and Literatures at the University of Northern Iowa. The concert will include discussion, reflection, and music. Trio 826 was created in 2011 by three friends to explore ideas for innovation in the performance of classical music.

The members of Trio 826 have vast experience as orchestral and chamber musicians, soloists, and educators. The mission of Trio 826 is to be an agent of change in the classical arena. Their hope is to be curious about their audience, risky in their presentations, and do everything it takes to bring classical music to life. Trio 826 performs new and standard repertoire in a variety of venues, from formal concerts to shows in intimate, informal, and unusual settings.  For 2012, the trio commissioned a work entitled "Soneando" by University of Northern Iowa Faculty Composer Robert Washut.

The Signature Series is presented by WVIK-Quad Cities NPR in collaboration with the Quad City Symphony Orchestra and Augustana College. Rebroadcast on WVIK, this versatile and intimate six-concert series features select members of the QCSO and visiting artists from across the nation. Under the artistic direction of the Quad City Symphony Orchestra's Concertmaster Naha Greenholtz, the Signature Series is a testament to the vitality of the classical music community in the Quad Cities. This performance by Trio 826 will be rebroadcast on WVIK-Quad Cities NPR 90.3 FM on Sunday, April 20, at 7:00 p.m.
