I hope those of you enduring hot weather are keeping cool.
** Lana Krakovskiy in Free lunchtime concert at St. Ann and the Holy
Wednesday, July 14 at 1:10 I will play the restored 1925 Skinner
organ. Music of Byrd, Bach and Krebs. It's going to be very exciting
to play some non-traditional registrations on that marvelous
157 Montague Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201-3587
** An unfortunate fate met Brooklyn Baptist Temple during the NY heat
wave. Fire swept through the sanctuary causing serious damage to the
esteemed Steere organ. Additionally fire destroyed the records of the
Brooklyn AGO chapter. I find it especially poignant as I was just
there several weeks ago attending a silent movie screening. That was
probably the last time the organ was heard publicly before the fire.
** Church finally gets $325,000 pipe organ
"A new pipe organ arrived at the First Presbyterian Church in
Phoenixville, Pa. on Monday"
** Organ players follow the pipes
"Church tour part of 3RF until Thursday"
** For Grand Lake Theater owner, movies must go on
"We have the Wurlitzer pipe organ playing in the main auditorium on
Friday and Saturday nights before the feature. I don't think there's a
first-run theater across the country that is doing that right now."
** Good resource! I didn't know about it until this morning.
Please visit Sacred Classics, organ and choral masterpieces streamed
over the Internet since 1983.
