Organ Recital by Michael Ging (In-Person and Livestream)

Sunday, February 5 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm

Today’s organist, Michael Ging, has appeared at the 11th International Organ and Early Music Festival (Oaxaca), the Leipzig in Houston Festival, the Houston Early Music Festival, and four solo recitals at the Piccolo Spoleto Festival. He has premiered compositions by Ryan Gagnon, Daniel Sigmon, Peter Mathews, Thomas J. White, and Daniel Knaggs. He is the Director of Music & Parish Organist at All Saints Episcopal Church (Winter Park, FL). 

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.
