Camden — The Friends of Music Concert Series, an outreach program of The First Congregational Church of Camden, presents organist Gail Archer for a virtual concert that premieres on YouTube Sunday, April 18, at 4 p.m.

As a concert organist, Archer has performed and recorded all over the world. She is on the faculty at Vassar, Barnard and Columbia, and will share masterworks by Bach, Brahms, Boulanger and several contemporary composers performed on a beautiful Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ.

Because the First Congregational Church has been operating virtually during the COVID pandemic, this concert is being recorded especially for the Friends of Music Series. The presentation will be accessible via a unique link posted to the church’s Facebook page on the afternoon of April 18.

The complete 2021 Friends of Music concert schedule can be found at Organizers invite the public to tune in to each of the free concerts this year.
