Dueling Keyboards return Saturday

Devon Hansen, director of music at St. Andrew’s United Church, left, on piano, and Joel Vanderzee, former director of music at St. Andrew’s, on the organ, perform.

The fourth edition of Dueling Keyboards will be presented as part of the Saturdays at 7 at St. Andrew’s concert series on Jan. 21.

A favourite among concert goers, Dueling Keyboards puts the piano and organ at centre stage.

St. Andrew’s is fortunate to have a Yamaha concert grand piano as well as its historic 1925 Casavant pipe organ and they are set to go head to head once again to find out who is the champion.

The program will include the best duets for piano and organ, including music from the Magic Flute, as well as spirituals and contemporary music performed by familiar local pianists and organists, including St. Andrew’s Devon Hansen and Nancy Tapley, in addition to artists Dan Lankhof and Joel Vanderzee.

As St. Andrew’s begins the centennial celebration of its Casavant pipe organ, this program will match its grandeur with its new Yamaha concert grand piano.

Donations (suggested $15 per adult) will be accepted at the door. All proceeds go to support the music program at St. Andrew’s.

The event begins at 7 p.m. at St. Andrew’s United Church on William Street in Chatham.
