The Friends of Music Concert Series at the First Congregational Church of Camden has announced the 12th concert in the Complete Bach Organ Works series presented by Tom Mueller, the church’s director of music and organist. It will be held Sunday, Sept. 26 at 4 p.m. in the church sanctuary at 55 Elm St./Route 1.

The performance will feature the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565, which became more widely known when it was featured as an orchestral piece in the 1940 Disney film “Fantasia.” The program also will include one of Bach’s most accomplished free pieces, the Prelude and Fugue in E minor “Wedge,” BWV 548.

In January 2010, Mueller embarked on a year-long series of 18 concerts that will present the complete organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach. Bach’s compositions are the most important body of work in the organ repertoire, and Mueller will be one of the youngest American organists to ever accomplish this feat. The Maine native is a performer, composer and educator. As a classical organist and pianist, his travels have taken him across the United States and Europe including a period of study in the Netherlands, where he studied early music of the North German repertoire.

Mueller is a specialist in choral composition. His works has been performed throughout the United States and performances have been featured on international radio and television broadcasts. He also plays guitar in The Muellers, a well-known family bluegrass group that has performed throughout North America. Their fourth album, “The Muellers,” was released in 2009.

Mueller holds music degrees from the University of Maine at Augusta (jazz composition) and the University of Notre Dame (organ, conducting and liturgy).

A reception will follow the concert in the church’s Mayflower Room with light refreshments and an opportunity to meet and discuss the music with Mueller. As always, each Friends of Music concert is free and open to the public, although donations to support a recently established music scholarship program will be cheerfully accepted at the door.
