Wanamaker Organ Hour: Talented Organ Students in the Spotlight, August 5th on ENCORE!


This month's show features some truly outstanding young talent playing the Wanamaker Organ. It's the second of two shows featuring students of Alan Morrison from the Curtis Institute of Music. This is an annual collaboration between Curtis and Macy's, which offers the students a week-long workshop with Peter Richard Conte at the Wanamaker Organ, exploring the Symphonic School of organ repertoire, performance, and registration. The Curtis students performed a concert on the Wanamaker Grand Court Organ last April, to cap off their week-long workshop; this program features music from that live performance. Join us on Sunday, August 5th, 5 to 6 pm.
