Join us to hear conclusion of The Philadelphia Orchestra's chronological survey of Brahms’ magisterial four symphonies from last spring with a performance of his Symphony No. 4, on WRTI’s Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast from 1 to 3 pm on Sunday, September 24th.

Johannes Brahms' last work was composed for an instrument he’d not written for in decades, in a style that harkened back to J.S. Bach. WRTI’s Susan Lewis has more on Brahms' chorale preludes for organ.

“I still get goosebumps hearing the instrument up close.” That’s what WRTI production manager Joe Patti says about the Wanamaker Organ. Join Joe as Macy’s Grand Court Organist Peter Richard Conte hosts an hour of organ music live from Macy’s in Center City Saturday, June 3rd, 11 am to 12 noon on WRTI.

On this month's Wanamaker Organ Hour, it's music of J.S. Bach and Johannes Brahms performed by Macy's Grand Court Organist and your host, Peter Richard Conte.

Macy’s Grand Court organist Peter Richard Conte presents three works selected from two wonderful concerts on this month's Wanamaker Organ Hour, Sunday, November 6th at 5 pm. 

This week on the Wanamaker Organ Hour, host Peter Richard Conte welcomes back organist and flugelhornist Andrew Ennis as special guest. On the broadcast will be music they’ve performed on the Wanamaker Organ as soloists and together in four-hand arrangements. Plus, Peter accompanies Andrew on flugelhorn, the softer, mellower cousin of the trumpet, on a few works.

In a special re-broadcast this Sunday at 5 pm on WRTI, Peter Richard Conte, host of our Wanamaker Organ Hour, performs on and emcees the Wanamaker Organ Day program, which originally aired June 4th.
