Join Akron Symphony Music Director Christopher Wilkins and Principal Keyboardist Bob Mollard as they talk about all things Organ Symphony in preparation for our upcoming Classics Concert!
Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony stars the king of instruments, and it packs a powerful punch. The work is part spiritual journey, part sonic theater. Perkinson’s Worship, an orchestral fantasy on the familiar hymn tune, Old 100th, moves between jazz, gospel, and classical styles. Brilliant, sumptuous, and transcendent, Respighi’s Church Windows takes its title from celebrated Italian stained-glass artwork.
