It has been said that organists were the rock stars of the 1800s. No really. In one instrument you had the complexity of the computer, the beauty of a marvelous sculpture, the wonder of a great complex machine, instantaneous gratification of Facebook, and the gossip of Twitter.
One of the reasons was the uniquely American programmatic music for the organ. The organ and its music could take you on trips to an 1812 battle, to a serene picnic in a park; all in one concert.
You’ll hear Thunderstorm by Ryder in the From Sea to Shining Sea organ and multi-media concert event! It really is thrilling! Just like a true Mid-West thunderstorm.
From Sea to Shining Sea, created and performed by Dr. Jeannine Jordan, concert organist with David Jordan, media artist.
