Performing History with Eastman's Italian Baroque Organ - Day 4

October 25, 2015
01:00 PM - 07:00 PM
Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester

The “Performing History” festival concludes with three concerts showcasing the Italian Baroque Organ, given by current and former Eastman students and professors. The Going for Baroque mini-recital series occurs every Sunday afternoon at the Memorial Art Gallery, and, in the last decade, has allowed thousands of gallery visitors to experience the unique sounds of this beautiful instrument. 

The closing festival concert features Eastman’s three organ professors at the time of the installation of the Italian Baroque Organ at the MAG in October 2005. Ten years later, these renowned performers reunite to present a special tenth anniversary concert, a celebratory finale to the “Performing History” festival.
