Lenten Organ Concerts

Join us each Lenten season where the spectacular Ruffatti pipe organ is featured in six Lenten organ recitals offered by our Director of Music, Brice Gerlach.  In these informal concerts Brice takes the time to explain some of the mechanical workings of the organ and offers some musical insights about the pieces on the program. 

Each concert opens with a piece that highlights the magnificent horizontal trumpets protruding from the front of the organ case.  A work by J. S. Bach is always featured and arrangements of Lenten hymn tunes are presented, allowing for some of the diverse solo stops and softer sounds of the organ to be heard.  The concerts will end with a rousing toccata, allowing the audience to hear the full power of the organ. 

After the recital, the audience is invited up to the console to ask questions and to see the beautiful woodwork and craftsmanship of the Ruffatti.  Tours of the pipe chambers are also offered each week. 

Come hear beautiful organ music during Lent. Don't miss these special opportunities for personal reflection, meditation, and celebration of this holy season.
