Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments

Mailbag: “Bach in Virginia…”

November 23, 2013


Michael,

I live near Richmond Virginia. I am interested in seeing Bach and specifically the Toccata and Fugue in D minor performed on a Cathedral type pipe organ. Do you know where I go see this?

Thanks,

Andy



Dear Andy,

I suggest you contact the Richmond (VA) Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.

There are many fine church organs in the city…but difficult to pick one or two, or know where the Bach will be played.

This organ at Bethlehem Lutheran is particularly suited to Bach:

Happy hunting.
