Organist Charles Manning and vocalists John and Nancy Shuffle will get together again on Sunday, Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m. to present an evening of classical and popular music for the Musical Arts Series in Port Clinton. The theme of their Halloween evening performance is The Organ Unmasked.
Manning will play the Great Organ at Port Clinton’s Immaculate Conception Church, 414 Madison St. The digital organ is a Bravura L-324K Allen instrument custom-designed by Pellegrino Music Center in Canton, Ohio.
A native of West Virginia, Manning earned his undergraduate and master’s degrees at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. The organist at St. Luke’s Methodist Church and Congregation Beth-El Zedek synagogue, both in Indianapolis, Manning has appeared with symphonies throughout the Midwest.
Bass-baritone John Shuffle and lyric soprano Nancy Shuffle will perform with Manning. They possess a wealth of experience, versatility, and stage magnetism, having performed in musical theater, musical ministry, classical opera and oratorio and the American Songbook pops on five continents.
This concert is sponsored by 1812 Food and Spirits and Rosie’s Bar and Grill. Admission is $15 at the door. Student admission is free.
Although the organ will be unmasked, the audience will be required to wear masks and observe social distancing.
