CANCELED - The Organ Symphonies of Louis Vierne

Wednesday, May 6, 2020 - 7:30pm to 8:00pm
Stanford Memorial Church

Music of great drama, poetry, longing, playfulness, pathos, exuberance, and deep sorrow. The six remarkable organ symphonies of Louis Vierne (1870-1937) tower over the organ music of the late romantic era. He was, for 37 years, the organist of Notre Dame de Paris, and it is with that building that his music is so closely identified. In celebration of the 150th anniversary of his birth, the symphonies will be performed on the Murray Harris organ in historic Stanford Memorial Church.

On May 6, Joseph Adam, Director of Music and Organist, St. James Cathedral, Seattle will perform Vierne's Symphony No. 5.

Admission is free. $10 suggested donation to support the organ concert series at Stanford Memorial Church.
