MARION – The Marion Congregational Church is enjoying an array of guest musicians each Sunday throughout the summer.

Beverly Peduzzi, church music director, has invited guest musicians to accompany each worship service while the church choir takes a summer break.

Walking past the church last Sunday, you would have heard the skirl of Sue Maxwell’s bagpipe. Sandy Morgan, pianist and organist, and Wendy Rolfe, one of the leading performers on historical and modern flutes, also performed in July.

Coming in August will be The Yarmouth Congregational Church Quartet on Aug. 7.

Vi Taylor, 1st chair cellist of the Fall River Symphony Orchestra will perform Aug. 14.

Phil Sanborn, director of the Tri-County Symphonic Band, Karen Sanborn, saxophonist and member of the Tri-County Band and pianist Laurie Black will perform as an instrumental ensemble on Aug. 28.

The summer music program will continue in September beginning with bassoonist Kathy McWilliams, graduate of the New England Conservatory on Sept. 4.

The community is invited to the Sunday services at the Marion Congregational Church on 28 Main Street beginning at 10 a.m.

Visitors can also sit in the church yard to enjoy the music and join the lively chat and coffee at the Congo Café following worship.
