The Westminster Organ Concert Series begins its 39th season on Friday, October 12, at 7:30 pm, with an organ recital of French baroque music by organist Matthew Hall. The program includes music by Louis Couperin, François Couperin, Louis Marchand, and Nicolas de Grigny. A scholar as well as performer, Mr. Hall holds degrees from Harvard University and Leeds University in England. He is currently a doctoral student in musicology at Cornell University. The concert is free and open to the public and will be followed by a reception.
The Westminster Organ Concert Series was begun in 1980 to share the newly-installed all-mechanical baroque-style pipe organ with the community. The organ, built by Taylor & Boody Organbuilders of Staunton, Virginia, has 18 stops and over 1100 pipes.
