Elisa Williams Bickers is interviewed in the Kansas City Star about the upcoming Opus 22 concert.

Last August, Village Presbyterian Church inaugurated its new $2 million organ, the 22nd one built by Richards, Fowkes & Co. Elisa Williams Bickers, the church’s principal organist and associate director of music ministry, gave a concert that, in my opinion, was one of the most memorable of 2017.

Bickers, who is also a member of the Bach Aria Soloists, will be joined by her colleagues for “Opus 22: The Organ and BAS,” a concert Feb. 10 at Village Presbyterian.

Bickers and violinist and Bach Aria Soloists founder Elizabeth Suh Lane, soprano Sarah Tannehill Anderson and cellist Hannah Collins will perform music by Bach, Handel, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Charles-Marie Widor. It’s an opportunity to hear this amazing organ as a solo instrument and as part of an ensemble.
