Piano and organ concert set at Outer Banks Presbyterian Church

The Outer Banks Presbyterian Church has extended an invitation to the community to attend an evening of piano/organ music on Sunday, August 15 at 5 p.m. at the church. This concert will feature Jason Evans, director of music ministries of Outer Banks Presbyterian Church, and Michael Morgan, director of music ministries at Edenton Baptist Church.

“Come on out and bring a friend and enjoy an evening of piano/organ duets, a piano duet, an organ duet and solo works on both organ and piano,” invited the event announcement. “The repertoire will feature well loved hymns of faith! Who knows, you might just get to sing a little bit too!!”

Morgan joined EBC’s staff in October 2015. A native of Shawboro, he attended College of The Albemarle and Campbell University, studying sacred music with an emphasis in organ under a number of accomplished professors and musicians. Prior to Edenton, he served as director of music ministries and organist for more than 12 years at First Presbyterian Church of Washington. He has played the organ since he was 16, and believes that “music is the universal language that touches all, regardless of race, creed, or color.”

Evans, originally from Edenton, grew up in Kill Devil Hills and joined the Outer Banks Presbyterian Church staff in June 2007 as the director of music ministries/organist. He also coordinates all music as well as Easter, patriotic and Christmas musicals using a combined choir and orchestra. He is a graduate of Wanchese Christian Academy and continued his education at Virginia Wesleyan University, earning a BA MUS in organ performance and sacred music. Prior to Evans joining the staff of Outer Banks Presbyterian Church, he served as pianist/music assistant at First Baptist Church of Norfolk, Va. for 13 years where he accompanied the 300-voice sanctuary choir and 50-piece orchestra and was the administrator of the church’s Conservatory of Fine Arts.

A freewill love offering will be taken in support of the musicians. Outer Banks Presbyterian is located at Milepost 8.5 on the bypass, 907 S. Croatan Highway in Kill Devil Hills. For more information, call 252-441-5897 or visit www.outerbankspresbyterian.org.
