A CONCERT TO USHER IN THE NEW YEAR
Tuesday, December 31, 2019 at 11 pm
Lucky audience members rang in the new year with a fun & festive concert at 11 pm, followed by a champagne reception at the stroke of midnight. Music was heard from Bach & Vierne to Johann Strauss, Sr. and seen played with the console out front-and-center. With 225 ranks of pipes which sang into the resplendent nave from both sides of the chancel, the rear gallery, and even the dome, the dynamic range and near-infinite color palette of St. Bart’s Aeolian-Skinner organ was an experience to behold in person, enveloped by one of the world’s largest musical instruments.
Paolo Bordignon, organ
