This event will take place in the church sanctuary at 3:00 pm on the church's wonderful pipe organ and all are invited.

Charles Olegar has been a concert organist for some fifty years and is currently the organist at both First Baptist Church and Old First Church of Bennington.  Charles also hosts a show on radio station WBTN-am -1370 weekly, “Music from Waller Hall”.
