N.P. Mander Organ Recital: David Higgs
Time: Sunday, April 15 at 3:00 pm
Location: Church

The magnificent pipe organ at the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola—at 5,000 pipes, 30 tons, 45 feet high, with 55,000 parts, four keyboards, 5,000 pipes and 68 different stops—is the largest tracker-action pipe organ in the New York metropolitan area. At a cost of $1.25 million in 1992, its creation by the English organ builder N.P. Mander involved a year of planning and construction in England, and a five-month on-site installation at St. Ignatius Loyola. The N.P. Mander Organ debuted to an audience of 1,800 with a recital by organist David Higgs on April 27, 1993.

One of America’s leading concert organists, David Higgs is also Chair of the Organ Department at the Eastman School of Music. He performs extensively throughout the United States and abroad, and has inaugurated many important new instruments including St. Stephan’s Cathedral, Vienna; the Meyerson Symphony Center, Dallas; St. Albans Cathedral, England; St. Canice’s Cathedral, Kilkenny, Ireland; and the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola in New York City. His performances with numerous ensembles have included the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Orpheus Ensemble, Chanticleer, and the Empire Brass. For more than twenty years the San Francisco Symphony featured his holiday organ recitals at Davies Symphony Hall, and now the Los Angeles Philharmonic/Hollywood Bowl continues that tradition each year at the Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Tickets: $25

Chanticleer: Upon this Rock
Time: Thursday, April 26 at 8:00 pm
Location: Church

Transcendent prayers of thanksgiving and consolation, psalms of happiness and paeans of praise, music has comforted and confounded saints and sinners alike for as long as spirituality and music have gone together. Chanticleer’s UPON THIS ROCK features works by Dufay, Poulenc, Weelkes Morley, Cornelius, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, Titov, and Cui, as well as the world premiere of Pulitzer Prize winner John Harbison’s first composition for Chanticleer.

Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker magazine, the San Francisco based GRAMMY® award-winning ensemble Chanticleer celebrates its 40th season in 2017-18. Praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for their “tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity,” Chanticleer is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from soprano to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz and popular genres, as well as contemporary composition.

Tickets: $35.00 - $90.00
