Join us for a very special and spooky event at St. John’s Norwood Parish, 6701 Wisconsin Avenue, Chevy Chase, MD.
Organist David Baskeyfield will accompany Lon Chaney’s 1925 classic film The Phantom of the Opera on Saturday, October 29, at 6:30pm.
Suggested Donation: $10 per person; $25 maximum per family (debit / credit cards preferred). Costumes welcome! Movie theater-style concessions available!
Known for a mature, deeply expressive and communicative musicality, Mr. Baskeyfield is the winner of an unusually large number of international competitions both in interpretation and improvisation, all with audience prize. He performs extensively in Great Britain and Europe, has appeared at major organ festivals in the US and Canada, and is frequently featured on the NPR radio program Pipedreams. He is one of relatively few artists based in North America to improvise regularly in recital. His two commercial recordings to date, both showcasing instruments of particular significance, have been received to high acclaim.

Admission is free. Donations will be collected to benefit SentencingProject.org, an organization that advocates for effective and humane responses to crime that minimize imprisonment and criminalization of youth and adults by promoting racial, ethnic, economic, and gender justice. A reception will follow the concert. Masks are encouraged.
