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.

Our Great Organ series will again feature the Cathedral Organists in recital, and splendid presentations by the Cathedral’s newest Artist in Residence, organist David Briggs. David will start the series off with his transcription of Elgar, Symphony No. 1, followed by a performance a couple months later of his own transcription of Mahler 5. Kent Tritle will give a thrilling all French recital, and Raymond Nagem will wrap up the series with pieces by Marcel Dupré and the majestic Symphony in F# minor by Karg-Elert.

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.
