George Fattmann – Tuesday Noon Recital Series

The Chair of the Tuesday Noon Recital Series at First Lutheran Church in Johnstown, George Fattmann, speaks with Jim Cunningham about the line up for July starting with soprano Andrea Blough and pianist Caleb Bean July 9th and followed by Johnstown Brassworks July 16, Aaron Sproul on July 23rd and Take Two on July 30th featuring Russ and Donna Miller. George describes the thirty five year history of the series, the beauty of the architectural landmark church, things to do in downtown Johnstown, where to park, his career as Executive Editor at the Johnstown Tribune Democrat and directing the news broadcasts plus writing editorials for WJAC plus teaching at University of Pittsburgh Johnstown for many years, studying journalism at Juniata College and Columbia University , selecting Pulitzer prize winners, interviewing Arthur Fiedler, leading the handbill choir and playing the Skinner at the church, providing lunch for free with volunteer help and the quality of life in Johnstown. Is it a challenge to represent the Fattmann family name in the workplace or with schoolmates? As Fred Rogers might have said – You are special just by being George Fattmann.
