Classical 89 is pleased to present “Organ Fest X” in The Cathedral of the Madeleine on October 20.
The concert, now in its tenth year, features the five organists from the Salt Lake Tabernacle as well as the organist at The Cathedral of the Madeleine, Gabriele Terrone. The concert is free and will be presented at The Cathedral of the Madeleine at 331 E. South Temple in Salt Lake City on Friday, October 20 at 8:00 p.m.
This event is a gift to the community from Classical 89, The Cathedral of the Madeleine, and the organists.
The Classical 89 Organ Fest was conceived as a gala event involving all five members of the Tabernacle organ staff, along with the organist for the Cathedral of the Madeleine. For every year since the first offering in 2008, those five organists from the Tabernacle have been the same five individuals: Andrew Unsworth, Bonnie Goodliffe, Clay Christiansen, Linda Margetts, and Richard Elliott. With anticipated retirements in the Tabernacle organ staff during the coming year, this will be the final year to feature this particular group of performers, and the programming and commentary will reflect the special sentiments of the occasion.
Donations in support of Classical 89’s weekly organ program, Pipedreams (airs Sundays at 9pm), will be welcomed.
