The Festival of Music Concert Series was begun by Lee Afdahl when he became the Director of Music and Organist at First Presbyterian Church in 1991. Now in its 27th season, one of the series’ highlights is the annual “Lee and Friends” concert.  A graduate of Luther College, Lee has served as a church musician for more than forty years–leading active programs of choral and handbell ensembles in Michigan and Minnesota.  He has conducted festival conferences for the Handbell Musicians of America and several international handbell groups and led handbell classes for the American Guild of Organists.  He has served the Handbell Musicians of America in various capacities, including president. Lee represented the organization as a conductor at the International Handbell Symposia in Liverpool, UK in 2012 and Jeju, South Korea in 2014.
