About the Aptos Keyboard Series at St. John's
features International World-Class Pianists
co-presented by Josef Sekon, artistic director, & the Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist
Our Mission: to promote gifted young pianists and offer them the opportunity to perform in a concert setting. Our History: Artistic Director Josef Sekon, longtime music teacher at Cabrillo College, hosted concerts in his home and other local venues for the past several years. Several St. John's parishioners actively supported this artistic venture in various ways, from hosting musicians to providing financial support, and, of course, serving as a loyal audience. So when the concert series began to outgrow a "house concert" size, St. John's was a logical place to look for a new home. To begin, a parish member has loaned the church a Steinway piano to do justice to the level of the musicianship being shared.
St. John's is delighted to partner with Josef Sekon in presenting the Aptos Keyboard Series, henceforth to be known as "The Aptos Keyboard Series at St. John's." It is our hope that we can expand the opportunity from a house concert with an audience of 35 to our larger venue as St. John's, with our wonderful acoustics. And we hope to maintain the intimate atmosphere of a “Salon Setting” for upcoming concerts. If you love listening to world class piano music in a relaxed setting please come to this series of Sunday afternoon concerts. We are delighted to accept financial support to help promote these young guest artists in our own community.
