LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Midwest Holocaust Education Consortium will host a free concert for the general public at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 16 in Mary of the Angels Chapel at St. Rose Convent.

Robert Hutcheson, consortium member and director of music at the First United Methodist Church of Webster Groves, Mo., will be joined by vocalist and guitarist Lolle Boettcher of St. Louis.

The concert will feature organ, piano, vocal, and guitar music from a variety of composers. Holocaust and Jewish songs will be included with an array of other music. The organ portion of the concert was chosen to highlight the power and variety of the chapel’s Casavant Freres organ and to introduce the audience to the music of Jewish composer Eric Zeisl, who left Europe the day after Kristallnacht and eventually found his way to the U.S.

Hutcheson has studied conducting in the U.S. and Germany. He earned a Ph.D. in music performance practice and conducting and holds both Choir Master and Associate certification from the American Guild of Organists.

Selected works to be performed include March for a Festival by Mark Cheban, The Emperor’s Fanfare by Antonio Soler, Prelude and Fugue in C Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach, and Pieces for Barbara by Eric Zeisl.
