An organ recital will be held Sunday at Abiding Savior Lutheran Church, 1845 Sawburg, Ave. in Alliance.
Bruce Snyder will be performing a variety of musical selections, something for every musical taste. His program will feature a variety of styles and composers.
Snyder was born and reared in Salem and graduated from Salem High School. Majoring in organ with a minor in piano, Snyder graduated cum laude from Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music in Berea.
Presently, Snyder is the organist at Abiding Savior Lutheran Church. He has served as musician for several churches in Cleveland, Salem, Canfield and Alliance. He also worked as a Flue Voicer for Hillgreen, Lane & Company organ builders, and later, A.R. Schopp’s Sons, Inc. For many years, he had his own Pipe Organ Maintenance business.
Snyder and his wife, Marlene, reside in Alliance. They have two sons, Scott and Jay, and a grandson, Stephen.
Monetary donations will be gathered for the Alliance Habitat for Humanity: Apostles Build. The Apostles Build brings together churches in the area to provide housing for families in need. The churches work together to provide prayer, funding, and volunteer labor to build a house in partnership with a local family.
The recital begins at 3:00 p.m. with a dessert reception to follow.
