CHINA GROVE – Local organist Alden Wright will play at Concordia Lutheran Church, 185 Concordia Church Road, on Sunday for the 11 a.m. worship service. Wright is a graduate of Jesse Carson High and is well sought after in Rowan County as both musician and accompanist. He first played for Concordia on Ash Wednesday when he was 14 years old. The congregation was amazed at his organ skills and the power he added to the hymns and the worship setting.
In recent years he has played regularly for many area congregations and currently serves as organist for Millford Hills United Methodist Church in Salisbury.
This fall Wright will be attending the prestigious Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. He was also accepted at Julliard in New York.
This Sunday at Concordia, in addition to playing the organ, he will also perform on the new digital piano which will be dedicated at the 11 a.m. service. This instrument is an addition to our worship and will provide a greater resource for rich sounds and creative keyboarding that will expand Concordia’s music ministries.
