Sing-along concert to raise organ donation awareness

A trio of music professors will join a UWindsor grad for a concert and sing-along at Windsor’s All Saints’ Church, Sunday, December 16. The event will raise money for organ donation awareness.

Pianist Gregory Butler and organist David Palmer have been asked for several years to put on a special Christmas performance but have never had time until now.

“Not only have we found the time to do this, but All Saints’ has graciously provided the space,” Dr. Butler posted on the website of sponsor Sport Fest Windsor.

The pair has found that running their own company gives them the power to maintain artistic freedom.
