OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — On Sunday, an organist at St. Cecilia Cathedral combined sound and light in a free concert at the church.

Cathedral organist Marie Rubis Bauer played music inspired by biblical stories and images from stained glass windows housed in a church in Topeka. She played ten movements and hopes the sounds helps listeners feel connected to faith.

"I hope they feel really connected to the bible stories, I hope it connects the bible stories to this point in time, the musical language is not traditionally classical, you would say but it reads like more of a movie script," Rubis Bauer said.

This spring, she will be playing the concert again in Topeka.
