Hundreds hear Dettra
Renowned organist Scott Dettra’s recital at St Peter’s Parish Church was quite a treat for the hundreds who turned out to hear him as well as for the opening of the St Peter Flower Festival.
This year, the United States Embassy partnered with the church, bringing in Dettra as special guest.
United States Embassy Consul General Eugene Sweeney, introducing Dettra, told his audience that the sought-after organist made over 350 appearances a year.
Sweeney said the prize-winning organist, also the associate director of music of the Washington National Cathedral, had prepared ensembles for performances with the National Symphony Orchestra and the Julliard Orchestra.
