Organ Spooktacular featuring Wolff von Roos
OCTOBER 29, 2022 • 6:30 pm
Don your favorite costume and bring the entire family to a pipe organ concert perfect for all ages! With music ranging from Bach’s famous Toccata & Fugue in D Minor (known to many as the “Phantom of the Opera”) to a medley of tunes from Harry Potter, PUMC’s family-friendly tradition concludes with this open-to-all, informal concert.
Wolff von Roos is a young and active organ recitalist who has performed in venues across the United States & Canada. He’s the only one in his class and probably in the whole field of organists that actually wears a cape.

We want your input on the songs we sing! On November 12 and 19, we will have a display in the Lobby where you can donate money towards your favorite Christmas song from the list we provide. The songs with the highest donations will be featured in the sing-a-long on December 3 at 6:30 p.m. in the sanctuary at PUMC.
To vote for your favorite carol, you can send a check to Plainfield United Methodist Church at 600 Simmons St., Plainfield, IN 46168. Please write the title of your favorite song on the memo line. You can also vote online at app.securegive.com/PUMC by choosing "Carol-A-Thon" and entering the title of your favorite song in the message line.
All proceeds from the Carol-A-Thon will be added to the Christmas Eve offering, which will be donated to the Bishop's Christmas Offering for Children. Thank you for being so supportive, and we hope to see you at the event!
