On October 27, 2019, the congregation and many neighbors and friends came together to enjoy a piano and organ recital in the sanctuary here at Zion Lutheran Church.
Nick Galanaitis, Jacob Ziegler and Ian Hoke performed many selections from Mozart, Chopin, Bach and others including original pieces by Nick Galinaitis. The Zion Gethsemane Choir took part in the performance as well. We were treated to a piano and organ duet, a four-handed piano duet, and we even took part in singing some familiar hymns.
