Scottish Rite organ dedication and recital

Join master organists Dr. John Friesen for an organ recital, dedicating the Scottish Rite's restored 1926 Kilgen organ.

John is a classically-trained organist. He earned his Bachelor of Sacred Music degree from Grace University in Omaha, Nebraska, and Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees in piano and organ performance from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. John has been a longtime friend and consultant for Bedient, adding sales and advertising responsibilities to his duties. He has taught and performed throughout Nebraska and internationally. John served as organist for Saint Paul United Methodist Church in Lincoln, Nebraska from 1996 to 2014.

The Scottish Rite organ began with a gift from the class of 1919. Interest accrued and with the approval of Ill. Brother Frank C. Patton, 33°, the organ was purchased and installed in 1926 for $25,000.00 America's foremost concert organist Clarence Eddy gave the dedication recital on September 25 and September 26, 1926. The organ has been used ever since for public performances and to enhance the mood of Scottish Rite degrees during Reunions. 

The organ is dedicated in memory of Ill. Brother George Rice, 33° who donated countless hours maintaining and playing it over the years.

The concert is open to members, guests, and the public.
