About the Series
The Spencerville Evensong Concert Series was officially begun in 1992 with Simon Preston's dedicatory concert of the Moller Opus 11806 pipe organ. The donors of the organ, Frank and Dolly DeHaan, asked that their gift be shared with the community. In the years that followed, a community of music lovers have gathered to hear concerts given by many of the greatest organists of our generation, including Simon Preston, Peter Hurford, David Higgs, Gillian Weir, and many more. After the addition of a Steinway D concert grand piano, the scope of the concerts was broadened to include solo pianists and chamber music. Nearing its 25th official season, the concert series continues to offer great music to the community, free and open to all to enjoy.
To be considered as a performer:
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include a sample program you propose, ideally with links to a live performance video we can watch online to get an idea of who you are as a performer or ensemble. Also include your fee. We run our series on a shoestring, relying often on exchanges of recording services for performance. The remainder of our budget comes from free-will offerings given by the concert audience.
