The Cathedral of St. John the Divine will continue the 2012/13 Great Music in a Great Space concert series with a Great Organ: Great Artists performance by Kent Tritle, Director of Cathedral Music and acclaimed organist, on Wednesday, January 16th, at 7:30 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, 1047 Amsterdam Avenue (at 112th Street), Manhattan.
Tritle’s program - Charles-Marie Widor’s “Symphonie VI” and Marcel Dupré’s “Magnificat Antiphons” - celebrates the French grandeur of the Great Organ, widely considered to be the masterpiece of American pipe organ building and an acclaimed national treasure.
In early 2012, Tritle led the revival of the legendary Great Music in a Great Space Cathedral concert and recital series from the 1980s, which showcased the most exciting composers and performers in the world of choral and orchestral music. The 21st century Great Music in a Great Space series of public concerts is inspired by world musical traditions and the Cathedral’s 100-year history of diverse and exhilarating musical events.
Tickets start at $25. For more information on this and future 2012/2013 series performances or to purchase tickets, please visit http://www.stjohndivine.org/GMGS_Organ.html.
