The two will showcase their unique combination of musical excellent with two concerts on April 14.

In addition to the two pianists, A Natural High will perform.  This group of singers, made up of people from various county churches, will present their all-new high-energy Southern gospel selections for the audience’s listening enjoyment.  A Natural High is in its 30th year of singing and has been ministering through music, giving concerts in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Ohio.

The first concert on Sunday, April 14, will be at 2:00 p.m. and the second concert starts at 4:30 p.m. both taking place in the courtroom of the Old Courthouse Museum, 103 W. Cherry, Watseka. Because seating is limited in the courtroom, tickets are being sold on a first-come, first-served basis. If any tickets remain, they will be sold at the door, but generally these concerts are sold out before the performance date. Both concerts will be followed with refreshments being served in the Victorian Parlor.

Pat Neal, in addition to being an exceptional pianist, is director of A Natural High, a piano teacher, choir director and director of the Iroquois County Cantata. Cyndy Schmohe, also an exceptional pianist, is director of music at All Shepherds Lutheran Church in Columbus, OH.  The two are equally talented and will thrill the audience with their amazing two-piano duets.

Guest performers at the concerts will be Nathaniel Murphy of Gilman and a due made up of Mariah Yelenick and Eric Parmenter, both of Watseka.
