Inaugural Recital

                                                                               INAUGURAL ORGAN RECITAL

     As you know, during our anniversary year our historic upper church organ, originally installed in 1871, was substantially re-built to last another 145 years. Master craftsman Tony Meloni of the firm of Meloni and Farrier carried out the work. Our organists Catherine Lankford and super-sub Lenny DiVittorio, in collaboration with our music director Lucille Mascia, have been delighting us liturgically with its majestic and mellow notes for the last 5 months, and I think we'll all agree the results have been wonderful.

     In order to appropriately mark the arrival of this new musical resource and to demonstrate its technical and virtuosic capacities, we are proud to announce a formal inaugural organ concert in our upper church to take place on Sunday, May 7 at 3 PM. The soloist will be Jamie Hitel, Director of Music at Christ Church Greenwich, Connecticut, a widely-respected performer, composer, conductor and teacher. In addition, he maintains a busy solo organ recital career. Concert venues have included London's St Paul's and Westminster Cathedrals; New York's Saint Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue, Trinity Church, Wall Street; and Seattle's Saint Mark's Cathedral. Recent organ recitals in Germany have included concerts in Paderborn Cathedral, Rheda-Wiedenbrück and Braunschweig and as guest conductor of the Leipzig Baroque Orchestra in a performance at St Thomas Church, Leipzig, Germany. Please mark your calendar for this wonderful musical opportunity to celebrate the Easter season.
