Organist: GEORGE BAKER in recital

Broadway Baptist Church

305 W. Broadway Avenue

Fort Worth 76104

Organist: GEORGE BAKER in recital

Many of you remember George Baker's breathtaking recital at Broadway during our 1999 Regional Convention. That program marked his return to the music world after many years of devoting himself to medicine, and demonstrated to all in attendance that he still possessed the abilities that had enabled him to win the AGO National and the Grand Prix de Chartres twenty years before. Since then, he has distinguished himself as a composer as well as performer, and as an advocate and teacher of the art of improvisation. Baker's recital is one of three to be presented this season in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Rildia Bee Cliburn organ at Broadway. 

Admission is free and open to the public
