Dedication of a New Organ
The rich sounds of an organ played by highly accomplished musicians swelled from Noble’s St. Luke’s Chapel on the afternoon of August 29 in a celebratory inaugural concert on the new organ, a Johannus Opus 270, purchased by the Noble Horizons Auxiliary. The concert was also the official dedication of the organ in honor of former Administrator Eileen Mulligan.
Deirdre Broderick, who plays for Noble’s chapel services, had assembled a group of four guest organists, who, along with Ms. Broderick, performed a widely varied program that ranged from J.S. Bach to Duke Ellington to Paul Anka, culminating in a rousing five-handed Beethoven finale.
The guest organists were Jack Bowman, Justyn Zitnay, Christine Gevert and Donald Sosin.
