Enjoy this wondrous experience with organ, dancers, multimedia, and light projection!

Presented in conjunction with the American Guild of Organists 2024 National Convention in San Francisco (June 30-July 4), organist Faythe Freese’s colorful and engaging program at Grace Cathedral presents music by Langlais, Jermar, Guilmant, Decker, Price, and Sowerby.
