Piano Postludes

I offer a series of piano pieces during one month each quarter as part of my weekly music program for services at First UMC of Bella Vista. They are usually a related set of pieces, with the occasional potpourri, and are typically played at the postlude.

This project was started with a trial run in February 2017, as a result of so many folks asking me to play the piano in church more often. As a result, I decided to make it a regular occurrence. For me, it’s the chance to learn a whole bunch of mostly new repertoire. To see the exact dates of the planned program, please visit the Weekly Program for Church.
