Great Organ: A Recital Series

This season's selection of organ recitals presents an array of masterful performers, drawing out the majesty of the Cathedral's Great Organ.

Erik Suter, former organist at the Washington National Cathedral, visits the Cathedral to round out his year-long tour and tribute to Maurice Durufle's body of organ works. Kent Tritle, Director of Cathedral Music, brings his formidable musicianship to bear on works by Bach, Rorem, and Franck. Associate Organist Raymond Nagem will dazzle us with a program of Felix Mendelssohn's organ sonatas—a rare treat!

The Great Organ, built in 1911 by Earnest M. Skinner, and enlarged and rebuilt in 1954 by G. Donald Harrison of The Aeolian Skinner Organ Company, brings together in one instrument the very best from two of America's foremost organ-builders. The Great Organ recital program, one of the series comprising Great Music in a Great Space, brings world-class musicians each season to fill the reverberating spaces of the Cathedral with sound.
