Midday Masterworks Series

Midday Masterworks organist Deborah Krauss Smith began her organ studies in Monroe with the late Merruth Seaton, continuing at UW-Eau Claire where she received a music education degree with applied majors in both organ and voice, and then continued organ studies with the late Lawrence G. Kelliher, longtime organist/director of music at Bethel Lutheran Church in Madison.  She has also directed the Monroe Swiss Singers mixed choir since 1985.

Established in 2002 as a way to feature the new 39-rank, three-manual Berghaus pipe organ at the United Methodist Church of Monroe, the free half-hour mini-recitals are presented quarterly from 12:15 - 12:45 pm, each with a different theme.  A late afternoon reprise of the program, from 5:15 - 5:45 pm, was added in 2008 to showcase Monroe St. Victor Church's new Matthew Ronald Buholzer Memorial Pipe Organ.

Both churches are handicap-accessible, and the public is welcome to attend the free concerts.
