Concert Reminder and Update

Our Thanksgiving Concert in honor of A.F. Schultz is Saturday, April 26, at 2:30 PM in the Church. The concert features Trumpeter Mary Elizabeth Bowden of the Richmond Symphony Orchestra and our own Douglas Leightenheimer at the Organ. Please come and invite your friends! This promises to be a very special event in the history of the parish.


Mary Elizabeth Bowden has arrived in Tucson for this weekend's concert, and has already made an impact here. On Thursday morning, Mary and Alan played together at the Upper School Mass, after which her trumpet could be heard across the St. Michael campus (at least as far as the church office!). On Thursday afternoon, Mary Elizabeth Bowden presented a Master Class at the University of Arizona. Busy day!

Keith and Elizabeth Hege are hosting a special party/reception with Mary Elizabeth Bowden at their home 6:30 PM Friday evening. Then Saturday is the concert!


The free concert is to be held in thanksgiving to God for enabling us to retire the loan for our Æolian-Skinner organ and establish an endowment for its upkeep in the name of Alan F. Schultz. May it be known as the “A. F. Schultz Organ” in gratitude for Alan’s ministry of teaching in our parish school and his talented musicianship at St. Michael’s, St. Mark’s, and throughout Tucson!For more information, please check out our Schultz Organ page. See you at the concert!
