Russian J-1 Visa student Georgi Zemtsov delighted the gathering crowd in the sanctuary at the Harbor Church on the evening of Tuesday, August 8. The 21-year-old Zemtsov, whose hometown is Kurskaya, told The Block Island Times that he began playing piano at the age of seven. He is majoring in finance at Astrakhan University in Russia.

Pastor Steve Holloway said that he heard someone playing one day in the sanctuary while he was working upstairs. When he came down to see who was playing he discovered Zemtsov, who he feels is quite talented. Holloway and the Harbor Church oversee the visiting J-1 Visa students program during the summer season.

Zemtsov played a few songs prior to the appearance of theologian Jim Wallis in the sanctuary.
