EASTER CONCERT with Dan Miller's Commentary
Get an insight into the Dan Miller's thoughts on each piece of the 2020 special Easter concert presented by Rodgers Instruments. This spectacular concert was performed by Dan Miller, Rodgers’ Professional Organist. The concert was performed on a Rodgers’ hybrid 4-manual Infinity 484 organ at Rose City United Methodist Church in Portland, Oregon.
For over a year now, the world has been facing challenging times and many of us have been affected in some way. Easter is the time to reflect and celebrate Jesus’ love for us and hope for a new beginning. Last year, as congregations gathered virtually to worship, we were honored to present a special Easter concert featuring beloved traditional Easter hymns to enhance your worship, whether individually or as a group. While things seem to be turning for the better this year, it is unlikely that everyone will have the chance to worship in person. For that reason we wish for this beautiful timeless music of faith and hope joyfully elevate your spirits.Thank you to Rose City United Methodist Church in Portland, Oregon for the generous use of their Rodgers’ hybrid 4-manual Infinity 484 organ.
