Back again to provide their very special musical magic as part of our Organ Concert Series, Ryan Anthony and Gary Beard will be performing at
3:00 p.m., on Sunday, April 29th, at Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
Always favorites during past concert series, these artists combine organ, piano and trumpet in a unique way. Those who have heard these two fantastic musicians before know what a very special performance they offer with music ranging from classical to contemporary.
Virtuoso trumpeter Ryan Anthony, who was once an outstanding member of the Canadian Brass, is widely known for his varied career as soloist, educator, chamber musician, and orchestral player. He has been Assistant Professor of Trumpet at the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music and also served on the faculty of the North Carolina School of the Arts. In addition to his many concert performances, Mr. Anthony is currently Principal Trumpet with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.
Gary Beard retired as the Artist in Residence at Lindenwood Christian Church, where he was music director and conductor of the renowned Lindenwood Chancel Choir and the Gary Beard Chorale. He has appeared as soloist throughout the country and on such great organs as The Tabernacle--Salt Lake City and Notre Dame Cathedral--Paris. In retirement he has expanded his interests in musical theater, and is now Director of Music at Theatre Memphis, where he has recently directed musical hits such as Cats, La Cage Aux Folles, My Fair Lady, and The King and I.
Together Anthony and Beard are truly a dynamic duo. The on-stage chemistry between these artists goes well beyond just music making and provides fun dialogue, beautiful music, and delightful entertainment for the entire audience.
The concert series is presented by the Schuld Family Fund, and a reception with an opportunity to meet the artists will follow the program.
