Ashburnham Community Church: Benefit Organ Concert
Friday, November 8, 2019 at 7:00 pm
A benefit recital for Ashburnham Community Church. Malcolm Halliday will perform on the 1886 George Hutchings tracker organ—that rare gem—a 19th-century instrument in excellent acoustics. In the finest historical tradition, all present will rise to face the organ and sing forth the Battle Hymn of the Republic, with the stirring support of the Hutchings.
