Piedmont 'SuperNova' organ concert features John Stender

By Staff
DEMOREST - The SuperNova Concert Series at Piedmont College will present Indiana organist John Stender in a recital of classic German organ music at 4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 22, in the College Chapel in Demorest.<br /> <br /> The SuperNova series showcases talented musicians who are at the beginning stages of a professional concert career. Stender is a second year graduate student at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music pursuing a master of music degree in organ and sacred music. He currently serves as Minister of Music at Servants of Christ Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Indianapolis.<br /> <br /> For the Piedmont concert, Stender will perform works by Georg Böhm, Johann Sebastian Bach, Hugo Distler, and Jean-Jacques Grünenwald. "John's Midwestern Lutheran background is reflected in the inclusion of numerous works from that tradition-a tradition that has been less well-represented on our concert series," said Piedmont President Dr. James Mellichamp. "It will be exciting to hear these wonderful pieces by German Lutheran composers."<br /> <br /> Stender will perform on Piedmont's Sewell Organ, which was built in 2002 by Casavant Freres of Ste. Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada-one of the world's premier builders of pipe organs. It is named in honor of Piedmont alumnus and former trustee Charles K. Sewell of the Class of 1954.<br />
