Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings Honors Hope College Organist Huw Lewis

Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings Honors Hope College Organist Huw Lewis

HOLLAND – Celebrating its 30th year, Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings (DCWS) has honored Dr. Huw Lewis of the Hope College music faculty as one of 30 individuals whose support, leadership and generosity over the years have helped make the three-decade milestone possible.

When DCWS was formed in 1982, Lewis was director of music at Detroit’s St. John’s Episcopal Church, where he had founded the St. John’s Bach Society.  He made the church available to DCWS for its first concerts, and the St. John’s Bach Society served as the fiduciary for DCWS until the organization obtained its own tax exempt status.

Lewis was among several of the honorees recognized during DCWS’s “30 Something” concert and 30th Year Gala on Saturday, Oct. 22.  His participation in the event included performing the harpsichord in a suite by Handel with DCWS members Kevin Good, Vicki King and Don Baker, who are also Detroit Symphony Orchestra musicians.
