The Langenberg Music Endowment was established in 2001 following the death of Luella Langenberg. The endowment provides for special needs of the church’s music program including the purchase of Steinway piano, honoraria for collegiate chancel choir section leaders, and for the purchase of Orff instruments.
The organ recital series is co-sponsored by the Hastings College Department of Music, the Hastings College Vocation and Values Program, and First Presbyterian Church.
