BACKGROUND – In February of this year, St. Colman Church dedicated a new 3-manual (keyboards), 36 stop organ. This concert will be the first, ‘kick-off’ program in a new series of concerts will be hosted annually beginning in September of 2013. The series for 2013-14 will be announced at this concert.

With the new organ, the church felt a need to share its blessings with the broader community. According to Craig Jaynes, the church’s music director and coordinator for the new series, “We have here a major instrument located in a building with incredible acoustics; it’s a marvelous place to make music. Every guest musician we’ve ever had has commented on how wonderful it is to perform here.”

For this concert a specially selected group of musicians, band directors from Washington Court House, Wilmington, Blanchester, Frankfort and Leesburg, has been assembled to provide a grand beginning to this new concert series. “This is the sort of thing one normally has to go to a big city to hear; we’re bringing great music to the country. I can promise an experience you won’t soon forget.” Jaynes added.
