Tabor concert to feature well-known organist
One of the world’s most recognizable organists will take the stage when Diane Bish, host of television’s “The Joy of Music,” performs at 7:30 p.m. April 10 in Richert Auitorium at the Shari Flaming Center for the Arts at Tabor College.
“Diane Bish is known world-wide for her concerts and particularly through her show, ‘The Joy of Music,’ in which she not only plays on the greatest instruments in the world in the most beautiful venues in the world, but also is such an educator about the music and composers,” Tabor director of music Bradley Vogel said. “We are incredibly fortunate to have an artist of her renown and skill on our campus, and look forward to sharing our new facility with her and her audience.”
An accomplished composer as well as internationally known performer, Bish’s television series debuted in 1982 to raise awareness and appreciation of organ music. The show is broadcast weekly to 300 million people.
The Wichita native is no stranger to Marion County. Bish is the sister of longtime Marion and county lake resident Judy Priest, and has visited often over the years.
