BAR HARBOR — Michael Bauer will play the final organ recital in the Friends of Music at St. Saviour’s Episcopal Church Organ Recital Series Aug. 30 at 12:15 p.m.

The musical selections will include works by Bach, Buxtehude, Duruflé, Vaughan Williams and a number of contemporary composers.

Bauer has been one of the two organ professors at the University of Kansas since 1987, and created graduateprograms in church music there.
