Keyboards at Christmas

in Arts by

The Music Ministry at The Baptist Church of Beaufort is delighted to offer the church and community a delightful opportunity to enjoy the “sounds of the season” at the Keyboards at Christmas Concert on Sunday, December 16, at 3 p.m. The program will feature seven keyboarders from the staff and congregation who will be sharing instrumental music in a variety of configurations using four pianos, pipe organ, and synthesizer — around 660 keys with all of them  “in action” on a few numbers!

The keyboarders from left to right are Cindy Duryea, Mary Hope Roseneau, Meredith Keene, Linda Keene, Judy Copeland, Glenn Ragsdale and Randy Wallace.

The instrumental repertoire runs the gamut from 18th century classical literature to excerpts from 19th century ballet to contemporary sacred and secular music to spectacular familiar carol arrangements. There will also be opportunities for participation in singing community carols and favorite songs of the season.

Most of the featured keyboarders are either staff accompanists or serve as worship pianists at The Baptist Church of Beaufort. Those participating in this project include Judy Copeland, Cindy Duryea, Linda Keene, Meredith Keene, Glenn Ragsdale, Mary Hope Roseneau, and Randy Wallace. The Baptist Church of Beaufort is surely blessed to have this much talent and looks forward to sharing its musical gifts with the community. The church is located at 600 Charles Street.
