A baby grand piano was donated to the Bristol Memorial Presbyterian Church in early October, so the church held a blessing of the instrument at a concert Sunday afternoon. The church’s director of music, Laird Graham, led the gathering in traditional hymns and was beyond excited to fit the piano into weekly services.

The Bristol Memorial Presbyterian Church was graced with the stylings of two talented musicians Sunday afternoon, when it held a concert to bless the donation of a baby grand piano.
Filling the church, around 40 people attended the afternoon concert when the church’s music director, Laird Graham, was joined by Sharon Adams, a well-studied pianist with many distinctions under her belt.
Hymns, classical melodies and Dino Kartsonakis tunes, as transcribed by Adams, helped break in the keys, as the audience sat in awe of the stylings of both musicians. Initially, Graham played the piano and led the singing of hymns, while Adams joined him on the organ.
