Organists of Eastman 2016

200 Years of Memorable Organ Music at St Paul’s Church

From the Concerto in G major for Organ and Orchestra by C P E Bach, 1755, to Rheinberger’s Concerto for Organ and Orchestra, 1894, to Poulenc’s Concerto in G minor for Organ, Timpani and Strings, 1938, there is something for you during Organists of Eastman. Please, if you go, write us a little something about what you heard.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Chestnut Hill, will host “Organists of Eastman” Sunday, April 10, 5 p.m. The concert will feature three organ students of the Eastman School of Music Rochester, New York, playing three concerti for organ and orchestra on the church’s world-famous 1956 Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ. The instrument was the last completed by G. Donald Harrison, and its 114 ranks make it one of the largest church pipe organs in the world. Also performing will be the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the “Ann Stookey Fund for Music at St. Paul’s.”
