CHAMBERSBURG - Acclaimed duo-organists Elizabeth and Raymond Chenault will open the 2016-17 Wilson College Van Looy Organ Series with a performance at 3 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 23, in Thomson Hall’s Alumnae Chapel at the college, 1015 Philadelphia Ave., Chambersburg.
The Chenaults, who have performed extensively throughout the United States and Europe, specialize in works written for two performers. The couple has commissioned and premiered more than 40 organ duets, establishing themselves as America’s leading duo-organists.

The Van Looy Organ Series is named in honor of Ellen Van Looy Reed, a 1953 graduate of Wilson College. Her mother, Priscilla Van Looy, donated funds to rebuild the console and relays of the Moller Organ in Alumnae Chapel and the Van Looy Endowment provides funding for the annual organ series at Wilson.
