Organ Recital by Christopher Keady – Livestream

Sunday, April 11 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Our organ recital series  features some of the finest organists playing one of America’s great organs. Grace Cathedral’s 7,466-pipe Aeolian-Skinner instrument, the Charles B. Alexander Memorial Organ (1934), is one of the first and finest American classic style organs, and is among the largest church organs in the West. Experiencing music in our gothic cathedral with its unique acoustics, soaring nave and jewel-like stained glass windows is a feast for the ears, eyes and soul. 

The concert will be livestreamed here and on Facebook.
