Cellist Yosif Feigelson and Organist Gwendolyn Toth Will Perform at a Benefit in Milford


Internationally heralded cellist Yosif Feigelson and organist/conductor Gwendolyn Toth will present a concert April 11th, 7:30 p.m., at the Church of the Good Shepherd and St. John the Evangelist. The Mostly Bach program will include organ works, some of the suites for unaccompanied cello, "Wachet Auf," "Pastorale," and music by Pachelbel. Tickets cost $45 (see below for details), and the concert will raise funds for structural improvements at the historic church.

Top Artists
A popular artist on the international circuit, Yosif Feigelson was the winner of the Bach International Competition in Leipzig, Germany, and the Avery Fisher Career Grant. His career took a great leap forward in 1988, when he substituted at the last minute for the legendary Nathan Milstein, and he has since performed as a guest soloist in concert halls throughout the United States, Europe, and Israel. Feigelson is the founder and artistic director of Kindred Spirits Arts Programs, which is producing this concert.

Gwendolyn Toth is well known in New York City and beyond as an organist, keyboardist and the founder/director of the early music ensemble Artek. Her recordings include Bach's Goldberg Variations, and she has performed and conducted major orchestras in the United States and much of Europe. Local music lovers may also know her because she and her husband, Dongsok Shin, delighted the audience last year with a Mozart program at the Grey Towers National Historic Site.

About the Church
The Church of the Good Shepherd and St. John the Evangelist, which is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the current sanctuary, is a cornerstone of the community. This landmark building also offered a refuge for the congregation of the Church of Saint John the Evangelist when that church closed its doors in the wake of the Tock's Island Dam project, and it houses the Ecumenical Food Pantry and a day-care center for children, including infants. Attending the concert will not only lift your spirits but will help preserve a historic structure and support its ongoing works of charity.

Tickets
This event is organized by Kindred Spirits Arts Programs, a nonprofit organization of volunteers in Milford, PA, that has been bringing quality entertainment to area audiences and educational programs to students at local schools since 2002. Tickets for this fundraiser, which $45, are available at www.kindredspiritsarts.org, at Books and Prints at Pear Alley (220 Broad Street in Milford, PA), or the church (110 West Catharine St.; Milford, PA).
