MOUNT VERNON—As part of the Dennis and Quinelle Sikes Fine Arts Series, Brewton-Parker College hosted renowned organist Diane Bish Sept. 11 in Saliba Chapel on the Mount Vernon campus.


Miss Bish, who is also an international television personality as the host of “The Joy of Music”, presented an organ concert for her audience. She began her concert with a special September 11th tribute by performing “The Star Spangled Banner”.


Miss Bish’s performance was truly special because of the way she employed the various parts of the organ during her pieces. While she gave her audience performances of more serious, classical pieces such as “Prelude on Fugue in G Minor”, she explained how the organ’s flutes worked, and then played three pieces to demonstrate. “Cuckoo”, “Allegro”, and “Humoresque” each demonstrated the use of the organ’s flutes.


In the second half of her performance, she presented original variations of famous Baptist hymns: “Jesus Shall Reign” and “There’s a New Name Written Down in Glory”. “The Joy of Music” is a weekly television program, which combines organ and travel to new destinations.
