Bishop John Folda blessed the organ and Jared Ostermann brought forth all its power and beauty as Sts. Anne and Joachim Catholic Church in Fargo, ND dedicated its new Rodgers Infinity 361.
The dedication service on Nov. 21 included the church choir singing anthems as well as leading two congregational hymns. In addition to presenting the organ in its role as accompanying instrument for worship, Mr. Ostermann, a distinguished concert artist who is Music Director at St. Joseph Cathedral in Sioux Falls, SD, also played several pieces for solo organ. The program included Toccata and Fugue in D minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, Choral varie sur le Veni Creator Op. 4 by Maurice Durufle and the Hallelujah Chorus from Messiah by George Frideric Handel.
