Final Recital on the Arents Memorial Organ

On May 22 at 5:15pm Acting Director of Music Benjamin Sheen presents a program including a set of three pieces by previous Directors of Music.

You can learn more and listen to live and on-demand webcasts of the recital here.

The program will include a set of three pieces by previous Directors of Music of Saint Thomas Church; Gerre Hancock, T. Tertius Noble and Frederick Candlyn. It will also include excerpts from Charles-Marie Widor’s 5th symphony – one of his most well-known, ending with the famous ‘Toccata’ and also a new work for organ solo by the British composer Jonathan Dove. The recital will be a final chance to hear the glorious sounds of the Arents Memorial organ before it is removed in mid-June and will include works performed in the dedicatory recital (given by William Self) on November 19th, 1956.

We are delighted that members of the Arents family will be attending this recital.
