Organ Concert Preview Experience

After service on Sunday, February 10, you are invited to a preview experience for the Organ Recital of Adam J. Brakel the following week. This time is designed to enhance and deepen your enjoyment of the concert on several levels. Join us at 11:15am in the Sanctuary.

Part lecture, part listening, and part experiential, the one-hour event will be divided into six 10-minute mini-topics designed with aspirations to intrigue and inspire further research and listening.  

Our questions of course cannot be answered in 10 minutes, but we should have a great time trying!

  1. The complete history of pipe organs and how one ended up in our church!

  2. The development of the human ear, and how our brain processes music!

  3. The structure of the Glatter-Glötz organ, and experiencing multi-tasking like an organist! 

  4. Adam J. Brakel’s program and a few juicy stories behind the lives of the composers!

  5. A few listening tips and skills for enhancing your enjoyment the program!

  6. Questions answered!

Karl Snider will lead the presentation.  Dr. Snider is a former music professor at Loyola Marymount University and Mount Saint Mary’s College, has served in several music ministry positions, and is a current member of the Neighborhood Church and Covenant Choir.
