World renowned flautist, Jean Ferrandis

September 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Built in 1914 by the Long Beach Bixby family, The First Congregational
Church is a beautiful Italian Romanesque structure in downtown Long Beach.
As the city changes, this stunning building remains a tower of faith in the
heart of the city.  The First Congregational Church is hosting a concert on
September 11th to raise funds for the preservation of our historic building.
We will be featuring a world renowned flautist, Jean Ferrandis, whom Leonard
Bernstein once described as “Pan himself.”  It is a rare event that he
performs in Southern California. Accompanying him will be First Church’s
organist Dr. Marc Dickey at the 70-rank Mighty Moller concert pipe organ and
the Sanctuary Steinway concert grand piano. The music will be by Bach,
Debussy, Hindemith, Schumann, and Verdi. The evening will conclude with a
tour of the building.
