Special Trinity United concert set
Sandy Rawson, a longtime church organist and concert pianist, will be featured in a concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, March 17, dedicating Trinity United Methodist Church’s recently acquired Allen organ, at the church, 100 S. Blake Ave.
Also participating is Rawson’s husband Alan, a concert violinist, Trinity organist Pauline Olsen and Donna Grubbs, the church’s pianist and music director.
A variety of music will be offered, taking advantage of the versatility of the organ, which Sandy Rawson donated to the church. A highlight will be “The Lark Ascending” by British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, arranged for violin and organ and performed by Alan and Sandy Rawson.
The Rawsons perform together under the name Rawson Duo, including concerts at their Chimacum home.
There is no admission charge for the church’s concert. Baskets will be available for donations.
A reception will follow the concert.
