    The commute from Colorado might be a bit much for him.
  • I meant to fly in for the time
  • You might have better luck locally than posting here. Have you tried the Harrisburg Chapter of the American Guild of Organists? (Incidentally, your church's organ is the cover photo on their Facebook page.) Perhaps there are some fine local musicians who don't have Christmas morning commitments. Good luck!
  • For those interested, we found a great organist in Hershey PA. But he is employed full time at a Presbyterian Church that only had services on Christmas Eve. He is usually pretty busy though.
