On Sunday, March 8, 2015, several members of the Akron, Ohio Chapter of the American Guild of Organists will perform on the annual Members Recital.  The topic for this year is "Outrageous Offertories" and the members have selected several fun pieces to play during the program.

The concert will be held at Bath Church in Bath, Ohio.  The church houses a fine three manual and pedal Schantz Pipe Organ built by the Schantz Organ Company of Orville, Ohio in 2004.  The church sanctuary at Bath church is a lovely setting, with large picture windows running nearly floor to ceiling, that overlook a wooded landscape.
