"Joy has worked especially hard this year rehearsing long hours to play additional organ pieces and piano accompaniment for the chancel choir. Joy always plays with a high level of skill and excellence. Her musical selections set the mood for the worship services and music programs of Central Church. We are blessed to have the benefit of her talents."
