Trinity concert to benefit Neighbors in Need
Linda and David Cornell, of Edmonds, are joined with family and friends to present a multi-faceted concert at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 18, in the live acoustic environment of Trinity Lutheran Church in Lynnwood.
Featured will be David Cornell's piano playing as he performs selections by Claude Debussy, Scott Joplin and William Bolcom rags, and the Claude Bolling suite for flute and jazz piano.
Soprano Linda Cornell will sing a Broadway medley, and they will be assisted in the concert by family and friends, Peter Cornell (piano and bass), Diane Cornell Figaro (piano and soprano), Mary Minsk (flute), Woody Minsk (percussion) and Debby Taylor (electric bass guitar).
A retired physics and astronomy professor from Principia College in Illinois, David was a church pianist for over 40 years and participated in the Van Cliburn competition for amateurs.
He and Linda currently sing in the Sno-King Community Chorale and have been active recitalists.
Their daughter, Diane Cornell Figaro, teaches privately in the Edmonds/Lynnwood area and is a professional accompanist for a number of choirs in the area, also serving at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Bellevue.
The concert is free and open to the public; donations will be accepted to benefit the Neighbors in Need, a ministry to the wider community, housed at Trinity Lutheran.
