Riverside Church (New York, NY, United States)
Michael Hey
-

Hailed as “one of the great amateur choruses of our time (New York Today) for its “full-bodied sound and suppleness (The New York Times),” The Dessoff Choirs opens its 93rd season with Multidimensional Magnificence: a one-night only performance at Riverside Church inspired by the many concerts produced by American composer/conductor Gregg Smith. His devotion to choral music was greater than almost any one of his generation.

Basilica of St. Patrick's Old Cathedral (New York, NY, United States)
Jared Lamenzo

In the mid-nineteenth century, pipe organs were a symbol of America’s growing technological and cultural progress. Thousands of people would attend a new pipe organ installation in a church, and newspapers would rave about a new instrument’s power and innovative capabilities. Built before electricity was available, the magnificent 1868 Henry Erben is the last large, three-manual Erben organ, and one of only a few from the era left intact with its original voicing and mechanical action.
