Bell

For one night only on Sept. 7, Murrells Inlet will come alive when internationally acclaimed organist Joby Bell fills the Belin Memorial United Methodist Church with the sounds of a custom-designed Allen organ.

Bell is one of the premier organists of his generation, his recitals demonstrating a varied and interesting repertoire designed to embrace all ages.

In 2000, he was awarded the second prize and audience prize in the American Guild of Organists National Young Artists Competition in Organ Performance. Since 2004, he has served on the faculty of the Hayes School of Music, Appalachian State University, teaching organ and church music studies.

His acclaimed blog, www.jobybell.org, provides a range of organ-related topics, including teaching philosophies, recital preparation, church music, and professional concerns. A must read for any musician.

Bell will be accompanied by Belin Memorialís epic 80+ voice choir with director of worship arts Jim Sellers and Belin sanctuary accompanist Sissy Rogerson.

The organ that Bell will be playing is a custom designed, pipe ready, Allen Quantum 3-manual with a custom stoplist. Designed by George Hiatt and installed by Fox Music House of Charleston, this is an instrument befitting only the best musicians in the world.

With Bell behind the keyboard, the Lowcountry can be assured of an unforgettable night of music.

The concert will be Sun., Sept. 7 at 6 p.m. (doors open at 5 p.m.) at BelinMemorial United Methodist Church, 4183 Hwy 17 Business, Murrells Inlet.
