During the month of February, we will collect monetary donations to help defray medical costs for our former organist and choir director, Nicolai Lomov.
Nicolai Lomov came to Central Congregational Church in February of 1992 as the Organist and Choir Director, until suffering a stroke in the summer of 2010. We were fortunate to have this world-class concert pianist as our Church Musician for eighteen years.
He began to play the piano at the age of three, and by the age of five entered the prestigious Mussorgsky State School for Gifted Children. At age fifteen, Nicolai made his formal concert debut with Yekaterinburg Symphony, and six years later, was awarded a Ph.D. degree. He became renowned as a world-class pianist.
Nicolai was always generous in sharing the gift of his music with Central Congregational Church and provided many free concerts on our behalf.
If you would like to help the Mission Committee defray some of his medical expenses, please use the Mission offering envelopes in the pews on February 9th and 23rd, or contribute anytime during the month of February – simply mark the memo line of your check “For Nicolai”.
The Mission Committee thanks you for your generous support of all our mission projects.
