Organ Dedication Recital
220 Shelton Rd
Trumbull, CT 06611
Trumbull CT – September 14, 2017. The Parish of Saint Catherine of Siena is pleased to present an organ dedication recital featuring Michael Hey, Concert Organist, on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. This is a FREE event, and everyone is welcome. A festive reception will follow the program.
Mr. Hey is a graduate of the famed Juilliard School and is Associate Director of Music and Organist of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York City. Described as flashy and exciting (The American Organist, 2012), he has been increasingly visible on U.S. and international concert stages, with recent performances for the U.S. visit of Pope Francis as well as solo recitals in Singapore and San Francisco.
The concert will feature solo organ works on the church’s new four-manual organ built by The Walker Technical Company, in Zionsville, PA. It is a custom designed, all-digital instrument consisting of 4 manuals (keyboards) and a large selection of stops (sounds). The sounds will range from foundational choruses to bright trumpets, to soft, meditative strings and flutes. There will also be a selection of percussion sounds such as bells and harp. The new organ replaces a 35-year old chapel-size instrument.
The Walker Technical Company (walkertechnical.com) is the leader in digital organs. Products manufactured by Walker Technical can be found throughout the United States, Canada, and abroad, and in such places as the Mormon Tabernacle, Crystal Cathedral, First Congregational Church in Los Angeles, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church, and Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center.
