Hall Marks

This week we visit three recent and noteworthy pipe organ installations in American concert halls.

Program Broadcast dates:

The Walt Disney Concert Hall organ, built by Glatter-Götz with tonal design and voicing by Rosales, was first played during the 2004 National Convention of the American Guild of Organists. It will be featured in a variety of solo recitals and performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic throughout its 2004-2005 inaugural season. The Jacksonville Casavant-Quimby organ will be heard in four solo recitals and the Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony. And, with Thomas Trotter as guest soloist, the Klais organ at Overture Hall will be the special focus of three upcoming concerts with the Madison Symphony, November 19-21, and a solo recital, November 23, as well as subsequent events.
