Event Details
Two classics of the organ concerto repertoire by Poulenc and Barber showcase The Irene D. and William R. Miller Chancel Organ in memory of John Scott in this first opportunity to hear the new instrument with Orchestra of St. Luke’s. Alongside the installation of this world-class organ, we celebrate the centenaries of two musical giants: Parry’s iconic setting of Milton’s sonnet Blest Pair of Sirens marks the centenary of the death of one of England’s greatest composers, whilst Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms celebrate the centenary of the birth of an American musical hero, and one who did so much to nurture the musical landscape and musicians in the USA.
