Join us at 6:30 when our own Tim Mueller presents a pre-concert lecture with information about the instrument, accompanied by photos of the installation project from a decade ago, and stay for the reception afterward to meet the performer. David is currently the director of music at Sandford Parish Church and St. Philip's Milltown, and is nearing completion of his PhD program at Trinity College in Dublin.
