Sundays at 3: The second concert will take place on February 26th and will feature Gerald Harder who will perform:
- Buxtehude—’Wie schÖn leuchtet der Morgenstern’

Robert Hebble is renowned as a colorist – a composer whose conception of beauty finds variety in harmony the way an artist mixes colour. For over thirty years, Robert’s career was closely linked with the great organist Virgil Fox, who appointed Robert as his assistant at the age of sixteen at New York’s Riverside Church. The final work on the program “A symphony of light” was the premier organ composition commissioned in memory of Virgil Fox.
A native of the Fraser Valley, Gerald Harder undertook initial organ study with Richard Unfreid at Biola University in Los Angeles.
