Ken Caryl Concerts

The Musicians of St Philip Lutheran Church are pleased to introduce “Ken Caryl Concerts,” an exciting new concert series featuring a wide variety of musical talents from our church family and the surrounding community. We will offer 3-4 concerts per year, and all ages are welcome. The concerts will include sacred and secular music of all genres. It is our hope to entertain, educate, inspire, and extend a warm welcome to the surrounding community with these events. All concerts will be free of charge, though donations will be collected to support the series and related funds, like our current campaign for a new sanctuary piano. Please save the following dates for our 2017 concerts:

 
Saturday, 9/30/17, 7:30pm — Mostly Mozart
 
Sunday, 12/3/17, 2:30pm — Christmas Classics
 
For more information on the concert series, and/or to learn how to get involved, please fill out the contact form to the right.
 
 
 

2017 Piano Award in Memory of Dorothy Koenig

Dorothy Koenig’s mother was an accomplished classical pianist who turned down a music scholarship to help the family and then got married. Dorothy disliked classical music and never really learned to read music. She played popular music by ear and “ragged” everything, much to the chagrin of her piano teacher and mother. However, she loved to play. Anytime she had a few minutes, she would play – for example, waiting to go somewhere or for some part of dinner to cook. Her piano went through multiple moves and she insisted that any apartment allow pianos, although in later years, she did not play much. She would be pleased to know that “her” piano will go to someone else to enjoy. 

The piano is a 1965 Yamaha upright with oak finish. Recent assessments value it around $1500-2000. Ken Caryl Concerts will pay to move the piano and have it tuned once it is placed in the winner’s home.
