“Back to the Future”
This is our inaugural solo organ concert, celebrating the new Hauptwerk virtual pipe organ built by Meta Organworks of Upstate New York and installed in the Concert Hall. Organist Randy Steere will showcase 4 of the 12 world class organs, including instruments from Doesburg, Netherlands; Goerlitz, Germany; Caen, France; and Portland, Oregon, representing historic and contemporary instruments.
The theme of the concert, “Back to the Future,” is apt in many different ways. The Hauptwerk virtual organ uses groundbreaking technology to reproduce the world’s finest pipe organs virtually, celebrating and respecting the long and diverse history of great organ building through the ages and around the world.
This program will feature works by Camillo Schumann, Max Reger, Seth Bingham, J.S. Bach, and Alexandre Guilmant.
