Jon Tyllian (left) was ready with Joseph Nolan (right) in the "green room" that is used for pre-event preparations. Jon is East Liberty's Organ Scholar and was a terrific help with all of the logistics of the concert including fixing a last minute cipher (constantly playing note) in the organ that day as well as assisting with page turning for the concert.

 

The concert began with sunlight streaming in the clerestory windows in blazing glory.
