“Music, Milestones, and Remembrances,” a concert at the East Hampton Presbyterian Church, will celebrate the rebuilding of the church’s Steinway piano, the 50th anniversary of the Austin pipe organ in the sanctuary, and present reflections on the church’s history on Saturday at 7 p.m.
Thomas Bohlert, director of music at the church, will perform on both instruments, while Hugh King, East Hampton’s official town crier, will discuss little-known aspects of the early history of the church and town. Stephanie Mocilan will play violin. Music will include selections based on the hymns “There Is a Redeemer” and “Crown Him With Many Crowns,” and Beethoven’s Romance in F for violin and piano. A bolero by Lefebure-Wely and “March of the Torchbearers” by Scotson Clark will conclude the program.
The Steinway Model L piano, which dates from 1927, was recently refinished and rebuilt after a successful fund-raising campaign. The pipe organ, built in 1962 and inaugurated a year later, is considered the largest on the East End. Suggested admission is $20, $15 for senior citizens, and $10 for students.
