Recital to Feature Music of Prof. Em. Bruce Backer

A recital and presentation to thank our gracious Heavenly Father for the ministry and work of Prof. Em. Bruce R. Backer will be held on Sunday, January 8, 2012, at 3:00 PM in the Chapel of Lutheran Preparatory School located at 1300 Western Avenue in Watertown, WI.

Prof. Backer taught several generations of WELS called workers. He was assigned from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary to be a tutor for the then Emergency-Teachers’ Training Program at Winnebago Lutheran Academy. After a year he was called to Dr. Martin Luther College and its successor school, Martin Luther College, in New Ulm, MN. As an organ and piano instructor, composer and arranger, recitalist, choir director, and teacher of the Lutheran Worship class, Prof. Backer molded his students in the practices of solid confessional Lutheran hymnology, liturgics, and worship practices.

Friends, acquaintances, former students, and all interested are welcome to attend this recital and presentation. For further information, please contact James Moeller at (920)-261-0327 or via
