      French Organ Symphonies, Volume 2

      In the second installment of French Organ Symphonies, Trinity’s organist & choirmaster, Kyle Ramey, will again present symphonies of Charles-Marie Widor and his pupil Louis Vierne. Following last season’s well-received performance of Widor’s Symphony No. 4 and Vierne’s Symphony No. 3, Mr. Ramey continues this season with Widor’s famous Symphony No. 5 and Vierne’s triumphal Symphony No. 1. Concertgoers will instantly recognize the Toccata from Symphony No. 5, perhaps the most well-known organ composition of all time. These works became known as “symphonies” because of the timbre-rich symphonic organs on which these commanding works were first performed.

      This will be Mr. Ramey’s sixth organ performance on the Trinity Concert Series. He has delighted audiences at churches and cathedrals throughout the country and is especially enjoyed for his interpretations of French romantic organ repertoire. As an added benefit, the audience will enjoy a full view of the organ console during the performance through the use of closed-circuit camera and large-screen technology.
