Feel the power and the beauty of the magnificent Johns Creek United Methodist Church’s Aeolian-Skinner organ, rescued from the area of devastation near Ground Zero in New York City. This magnificent instrument will take center stage in Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Timpani, and Strings, performed by organist Jeremy Rush. Also on the program is Eduard Lalo's Romance-Serenade, Maurice Ravel's Pavane for a Dead Princess, and Maurice Durufle’s hauntingly beautiful Requiem, in which we also feature the Johns Creek Chorale.
**This concert will be made accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing community by using sign language interpreters, written text translations, balloons, and special pre-concert presentation beginning at 6:15 p.m. on stage. The pre-concert presentation will include an up-close look at the organ, a review of its history, a discussion of how the instrument works and the science of sound, a live demonstration of the capabilities of the instrument with the opportunity to feel the vibrations of the wooden paneling on stage, and a pre-concert Q&A session as time allows. This pre-concert presentation is free and open to all ticketholders of any hearing ability.**
