Organ Recital by Raphael Attila Vogl (In-Person and Livestream)

September 1 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us as we kick off the 2024-25 Organ Recital Series with sensational young German organist Raphael Vogl. Currently a doctoral student at Juilliard, Vogl is sure to dazzle us with his artistry. His program will feature virtuosic music of the 19th century by Max Reger, and his own transcription of the final portion of Anton Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony, a genre where our 1930s organ and cathedral acoustic excel.

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. 

Please note there is an admission fee for visitors on Sundays from 1 to 5 pm. Those wishing to attend the organ recital must register in advance to avoid paying the fee. Thank you for your understanding.
