Combining my interest in history with performing on a magnificent organ seemed like a great idea, so when Mike Hobbs, from the Civil War Round Table, asked me to provide a program for them I quickly agreed. I had absolutely no idea, however, how this event would grow…and grow…and grow over the next days and weeks. What started out as a simple program for a local group has become a much larger event with TV, radio, print and social media coverage.
Click here to watch a KWQC TV Channel 6 segment from “Fran Riley Features…” about the concert. After watching the video, scroll to find a gallery of photos they took while on location.
During the taping of that segment, John was in the church balcony and took a few photos of his own, shown below. (Thanks to my daughter Lisa for the great title to the program!)
Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word: Fran Riley and Channel 6 KWQC, the Galesburg Register-Mail (click here to see the article), WGIL and Terry Cavanaugh, and all my friends and family (love those Facebook shares!).
