We'll hear from two famed Parisian composers for the organ - Francis Poulenc and Louis Vierne, 10/4 and 10/11. Here we see the famed Notre Dame Cathedral oran in Paris.

10/4      “Saint” Francis from France  Some profound and entertaining compositions by the ‘bad boy’ of the 20th century Parisian music scene, Francis Poulenc.

10/11    Saint Louis  A celebration of the legacy of the famed organist of Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris, Louis Vierne, on the sesquicentennial of his birth (b. 10/8/1870)

10/18    A Grand Organ Extravaganza!  A full helping of intriguing interpretive indulgence featuring David Briggs, Olivier Latry and Wayne Marshall in concert at Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center.

10/25    Beauty in the Midst of Chaos  Excerpts from the American Guild of Organists’ Organ Fest 2020, featuring compositions and performers scheduled for the cancelled 2020 AGO Convention in Atlanta.
