WINONA, Minn. – Organ students from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota will present a recital and hymn-sing from noon to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, April 29, at Faith Lutheran Church, 1717 West Service Dr.

SMU students Tony Freeman, James Possin and Jake Vercimak, along with their instructor, A. Eric Heukeshoven, will perform selected works by Flor Peeters and John Ferguson, as well as traditional hymn tunes. The recital will also feature two original works. “Evening Hymn” by Freeman is based on an original hymn text by Father Paul Nienaber, assistant professor of physics at Saint Mary’s. This performance will mark the public premiere of Freeman’s work. “Reflections” by A. Eric Heukeshoven will feature Dr. Janet Heukeshoven (also a member of the SMU music faculty) on flute.

The event is free and the public is invited to come, sing, and listen to this uplifting music.
