Breckenridge’s First Christian Church, 100 E. Williams St., will hold an organ concert by Rudy A. Lucente, an internationally acclaimed organ designer and Wanamaker organist, at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23.

The concert, which will be free and open to the public, is being held in honor of the dedication of the church’s new state-of-the-art Allen GeniSys GX350 Organ. A reception will be held at 3 p.m., before the concert, in the church’s undercroft.

Lucente, who has been associated with Allen Organs for more than 20 years, appears frequently as a recitalist and church music clinician and is a member of the Philadelphia Organ Quartet, an ensemble that performs music arranged for four organs. He has published a number of recordings, the most recent on the large Allen Organ installed in the Cathedral of Valladolid in Spain, where he performed for the second time for an audience of nearly 2,000 people.

“We are very fortunate to have someone of Lucente’s fame and expertise play our magnificent new organ,” said church member Virgil Moore.
