Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments
1985 Jaeckel organ at Concordia College
We celebrate American composers with a program of colorful works to match every mood. From the new-age patterns of William Doerrfeld to the rags of Scott Joplin, from church pieces to concert toccatas we’ll explore the vast domain of American organ music.
Fresh, exciting and new would be ways to describe the music you’ll hear. Works by Pamela Decker, Fred Hohman and Charles Ives among others with varied emotions and styles, and powerful gestures all under the inspiration of The American Muse.
