Pipe organs are massive and dominate the space they’re in — but the people who play them are often hidden.
92Y School of Music and host Naomi Lewin present a conversation for organ aficionados, and for anyone who’s ever wondered how to handle such an enormous beast. Lewin, the former weekday afternoon host on WQXR, will speak with four great organists: GRAMMY Award-winner Paul Jacobs, Chair of the Organ Department at The Juilliard School; David Hurd, Director of Music at the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, and former professor at General Theological Seminary; Rachel Laurin, former Titular Organist at Notre Dame Cathedral in Ottawa, now primarily composer; and Greg Zelek, Principal Organist of the Madison Symphony Orchestra in Wisconsin.
