The University of Rochester Press will celebrate its 25th Anniversary with performances by the entire organ faculty of the Eastman School of Music. The all-organ concert at Christ Church is titled "Organ Music of Mendelssohn" and will feature performances on the Craighhead-Saunders and Hook & Hastings organs. With this performance comes a new book edited by Jürgen Thym who will also introduce the concert. His book "Mendelssohn, the Organ, and the Music of the Past," published by the University of Rochester Press, will be available for signing. All the organists on this program are nationally and internationally recognized as specialists in their fields and this will be a rare opportunity to hear them all in one space.
The University of Rochester Press anniversary performance will take place Friday, February 6, at Christ Church, 141 East Avenue. 8 p.m. Free.
