On Sunday 24th July 2016, the church echoed to the glorious mix of sounds from Pipe meets Organ, as part of their tour of North East Scotland. In spite of the wet weather, the audience were enthralled by the musical skills of Christian Lontzek and Sebastian Schmoock.
Christian played on a variety of pipes and , including German and Scottish Bagpipes, whilst Sebastian played on our church organ. At some times the transition of sound from one to the other was so smooth and transparent, you had to really watch who was actually playing to work out if the music was coming from the pipes or the organ.
Not only did Christian and Sebastian entertain with their playing, they both also demonstrated their vocal skills during the concert of pieces from far wide, from Iran though Europe to Scotland.
They hope to return to Moray next year and once again fill our church with their musical skills.

Once again many many thanks to Christian and Sebastian for a thoroughly entertaining musical evening.
