Sacred Music in the Anglican Tradition of Stone Churches: Gifts and Challenges of Instruments in our Sanctuary.

Dr. Paul Chandley will speak at forum about the history and qualities of our Aeolian Skinner organ and the Baldwin piano. He will also address the Anglican tradition of a stone cathedral as it relates to the acoustics for the organ, piano, and voices as well as other instruments. He will address musical topics to include the unique challenge of organ and piano maintenance in an environment of fluctuating humidity.

This interactive lecture will be held in the front of our church as his wife Sophia Pavlenko plays selected sacred pieces to demonstrate the topic’s main speaking points on both the organ and piano.

Paul Chandley received his undergraduate degree in performance from the University of North Carolina and his master’s and doctoral degrees in performance from the University of Missouri – Kansas City Conservatory of Music. He is currently the Executive Director of the Trinity Music Academy in Troy, NC, Principal Conductor of Opera Experience Southeast, and Director of Music at the Trinity United Methodist Church. He has been a regular guest conductor for the Raleigh Symphony Orchestra, the Kiev Symphony, the Rockhill Opera Company, the Kansas City Opera Company and the Opera Company of North Carolina.

His wife Sophia Pavlenko has toured extensively throughout the world and has traveled to all 48 states of the contiguous U.S. Over the last two years, she has presented 87 concerts in North Carolina alone. Her musical compositions, including her astounding 1st and 2nd Piano Concertos, have been featured by the Kiev Symphony and Chorus and the Raleigh Symphony Orchestra. Sophia has been featured on PBS television and in Our State Magazine for her contributions in bringing world caliber music to North Carolina.
