Organist Paul Roy of Bainbridge Island will give a concert at noon at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 525 N. Fifth Ave., and then join his audience for lunch in the parish hall.
“Come and hear some great classical organ gems performed on the King of Instruments,” said Roy, who will offer the Grand Choeur by Théodore Dubois, a prelude by César Franck, Buxtehude’s “Jig” Fugue in C Major, Jacques-Nicolas Lemmens’ “Fanfare” and works by Charles Callahan and Johann Pachelbel.
All of this fits into Roy’s 30-minute performance; lunch is served at 12:30 p.m., and admission is $10 for music and meal.
No reservations are needed, said series coordinator Sammy Greenwood.
“Music Live with Lunch has been an outreach program at St Luke’s for more than 20 years,” she added.
The idea is simple: live classical music, then a hot lunch for anybody who can get away for an hour.
Music Live with Lunch happens thanks to players such as Roy, who volunteer their time. The only payment received: two lunch tickets.
When asked what inspired him to come all the way from Bainbridge Island, Roy replied: “Great venue [and] audience . . . and a delicious lunch” — which he knows from having performed four times before for the Music Live series.
The noontime concerts are held every third Tuesday of the month at St. Luke’s, October through May excepting December, Greenwood noted.
Music lovers can purchase season tickets for $50 at the St. Luke’s office. For more details, phone the church at 360-683-4862.
