PALATINE BRIDGE -- Trinity Lutheran Church, Stone Arabia, will host a Historic Organ Program at 7 p.m. on Friday, May 9. The church is located at 5426 State Highway 10 in Palatine Bridge. 

The program will feature Dr. Eric Stroud, owner of Upstate Chapel, Canajoharie. He will present  a "show and tell" focusing on the organ's pipe work including a rare opportunity to explore the interior hidden workings and unseen features of the pipes.

The musical part of the program will feature organists Naphtali Rothrock  and Norma Bowley, in addition to Dr. Stroud, as well as flutist Anne Cooper, trumpeter Terry Gordon, and vocalist Rev. Kenneth Dingman.

All of the program's music will be accompanied by the organ.    

Trinity Lutheran Church has had an active congregation for nearly 300 years. The original log church, built in 1729, was burned by theTories and their Indian allies during the American Revolution. The church was rebuilt by early pioneers in 1792.  Trinity is listed on both the New York and United States Register of Historic Places.  

The program is open to the public. Contributions for the preservation of the pipe organ and church will be sincerely appreciated. Refreshments will be provided.  For further information, call (518) 673-5443 or (518) 673-2224.
