The concert is a benefit for NorCal AIDS Cycle, a 330 mile/4 day bike ride which raises funds for local agencies serving those suffering from HIV/AIDS. Many of these agencies also provide prevention and testing services, to help stem the tide of this entirely preventable disease. So in addition to pedaling his bike three-hundred and thirty-miles, Canon Link will be playing the organ pedals to raise funds for NCAC.
The program will include: “Fantasia in G major (Piece d’Orgue)” by J.S.Bach, “Rondeau” by Henry Purcell, “Fantasie sur le Te Deum” by Charles Tournemire, and music by Dietrich Buxtehude, C H H Parry, and Joseph Jongen.
I recently celebrated my thirtieth year as Canon Musician at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, and have participated in NorCal AIDS Cycle for the last five years. I am riding in memory of Kenneth Piercy, a long time Cathedral Choir member who died from complications of AIDS in 2011.
The suggested minimum donation for the concert is $10 at the door, though donations of any kind, large or small will be gratefully accepted! Trinity Episcopal Cathedral is located at 2620 Capitol Avenue at 27th Street, in mid-town Sacramento. I hope you will join me for a afternoon of great music for a great cause!
