Our upcoming featured artist is Rob Landes, organist & pianist, on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 11, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary followed by a dessert reception with the artist.
Rob Landes began studying the piano at the age of three and made his “debut” on the Art Linkletter House Party program at the age of four. A native Houstonian, his playing has taken him from the United States and Canada, to Norway, France, Germany, and the UK. Landes is widely known as a pianist, organist, arranger, conductor, and published composer. He is associated with six national publishers and has 15 CDs.
The Rob Landes Trio is well known for performances in concert at Jones Hall, The Wortham Theatre, The Tower Theatre, The Houston Jazz Festival and the Galveston Opera House. They appeared weekly for three years on Channel 13’s Good Morning Houston. Rob has been the Organist and Artist-in-Residence at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church since 1996.
Rob will be presenting his concert “Music You Love” playing several of his own selections along with taking requests from the audience. This will be fun for everyone!
