Brad Hughley, organist and choirmaster at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Atlanta, will be the featured organist when St. James Episcopal Church hosts the rite of Morning Prayer for the Association of Anglican Musicians, June 22 at 10 a.m. at the church, located at 766 N. Main St. in Hendersonville.

The association is holding four summer conference meetings in four neighboring counties for more than 200 Episcopal Church musicians from across the nation. The national conference will also meet at Furman University Chapel in Greenville, S.C., the Cathedral of All Souls and the Biltmore House in Asheville, N.C., and Church of the Advent in Spartanburg, S.C.

“We are delighted to welcome the Association of Anglican Musicians to the Carolinas and to St. James in Hendersonville,” said Brad Gee, St. James’ director of music and principal organist. “The organ at St. James is a Harrison and Harrison from Durham, England, and is an outstanding installation in a beautiful neo-Gothic church with beautiful stained-glass windows and superb acoustics. We are thrilled to be hosting the service of Morning Prayer for this conference.”
