Christmas Concert: Downeast Brass with Jay Zoller, Organist, South Parish Congregational Church, Augusta, Sunday, December 17, 2017, 2PM

The “Concerts at Jewett” Series sponsored by University of Maine at Augusta College of Arts and Sciences and UMA Senior College will present “A Christmas Concert: The Downeast Brass with Jay Zoller, Organist” on Sunday, December 17, 2017, 2PM at the South Parish Congregational Church, 9 Church Street, Augusta.

For years South Parish Congregational Church and its fine organist, Jay Zoller, have shared their magnificent organ with the public in a special holiday concert featuring the Downeast Brass Quintet. For the past few years, Concerts at Jewett has been happy to join them in co-sponsoring
this event. A ticket to this festive concert would make a wonderful holiday gift!

Mr. Zoller plays the historic 1866 E. & G. G. Hook Organ for services and concerts. He comes to South Parish with long experience in church music and recital playing.

The Downeast Brass has performed in many New England settings. Audiences have enjoyed these fine Maine performers on the concert stage, at weddings, festivals, and on parade. Their wide range of musical styles makes them the preferred musical choice for many occasions.

The next concert is Sunday, January 7, 2018, 2PM – The Don Roy Ensemble, French Canadian and Celtic music (Snow date: January 14th)
