Bob Powell to Be Honored

Redeemer organist Bob Powell and his wife, Nancy, will be honored at a choral and organ festival on Sunday, June 4 at 4:00 PM at Christ Church Episcopal in Greenville. Their significant contributions will be celebrated with guests from the Greenville chapter of the American Guild of Organists and other churches across the Upstate. A celebratory reception will follow the concert.

A scholarship fund was established in 2022 to honor Robert Powell, FAGO, organist and composer of hundreds of choral and organ service pieces of published music, along with his wife, Nancy Powell, AAGO, also a consummate organist. They have served the Greenville community for decades as leaders and role models for the organists and church musicians of this community.

This concert is an exciting fundraising event for the Robert and Nancy Powell Scholarship
Fund, established to honor the Powell’s legacy by promoting the study of the organ and by encouraging today’s organ students to pursue a career as an organist. For more information, to join the festival choir, or to make a contribution to the scholarship fund, co visit

  1. Very pleased to hear about this! In addition to Nancy’s organistic talent, amply evident when she substitutes for our John Gilbert, she’s a faithful chorister and simply a delightful person to be around….not to mention the cookies.
