Vernon-based musician Jim Leonard gives a recital on the pipe organ at All Saints Anglican Church Nov. 15 at 3 p.m.

There will be video cameras on his hands and feet, connected to two 60-inch TV monitors, so the audience can see his performance up close.

Leonard will present one of his own compositions, Fantasy on B.A.C.H, as well as two pieces by the granddaddy of organ composers, J.S. Bach, including Toccata and Fugue in D minor, one of the most widely played and recorded organ pieces ever and the original Phantom of the Opera theme.

He will also perform compositions by Vancouver organist/composer Denis Bédard, Italian organist/composer Marco Enrico Bossi, Germany’s Johann Gottfried Walther, and Noel Rawsthorne, who served as organist of Liverpool Cathedral.

Admission is by freewill offering.
