EUCC Community Concert Series
2018-2019 season opens with Tom Colgan Trio
The Tom Colgan Trio will kick off the free Community Concert Series on Sunday, Sept. 23, at 3 p.m. in our beautiful sanctuary. Local pianist Tom Colgan is joined by virtuoso guitarist Mark Ryan and bassist Dominic Iacovone in presenting selections from “The Great American Songbook,” featuring music from Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, Hoagy Carmichael and Richard Rodgers.
About the performing artists:
Tom Colgan learned to play piano at his father’s knee. His dad, Hugh Colgan, taught him to read notes and to play chords. Later he studied classical music with Herb Springer. Tom has been playing in dance bands and jazz groups for more than 60 years.
Dominic Iacavone grew up in the Hershey area hearing his Italian grandfather play accordion as his grandmother danced. He is largely self-taught, a fluent player of amazing versatility, at home in many genres of music on bass, saxophone and keyboard.
Mark Ryan’s father was a jazz drummer in New York City, and Mark grew up rubbing shoulders with some of the finest musicians in the land. He now makes his home in Lititz, from which it’s a short drive to the Lancaster studio where he teaches guitar. Mark is highly respected for both his teaching and playing.
No tickets are required. Free-will offerings will be accepted. For more details, visit our 2018-2018 Concert Series page.

"This grand old congregation has attained its years through the consecrated sacrifice of many choice spirits. Your present and most beautiful church is an abiding testimony to their loving labors, and to the sincere devotion and deeds of the faithful among you. May that same service and patience, and generosity, and love which was evidenced by the past, be continued well into the future.”
—Excerpt from a letter to the Consistory written by Rev. Ellis Hay in acceptance of his call to the pastorate, November 6, 1904
