This Friday night, the Eastman Rochester Organ Initiative unveils the newest addition to its organ restoration project: an 1893 Hook and Hastings Organ, recently installed in Christ Church. Music will be performed by organists Edoardo Bellotti, David Higgs, Stephen Kennedy, and William Porter, as well as the Christ Church Schola Cantorum. According to Higgs, chair of the Organ and Historical Keyboards Department at Eastman School of Music, "the organ's unique, burnished sound gives listeners the opportunity to hear music from the Romantic period performed on a historically appropriate instrument."
The inaugural concert of the 1893 Hook and Hastings Organ takes place Friday, November 30, 8 p.m. at Christ Church, 141 East Ave. Free. 274-1100, esm.rochester.edu.
