Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia proudly begins our 2016-2017 season on Saturday, November 5th at 3pm with British Organ Invasion at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. This program features the remarkable tale of Christopher Smart, whose poem Jubilate Agno was written while Smart was in an insane asylum. Benjamin Britten’s brilliant cantata Rejoice in the Lamb captures its many moods with voices and organ. We are delighted to welcome Alan Morrison who will play the magnificent Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ for this program. We will also be joined by the Keystone State Boychoir.
Additional works include pieces by Finzi, Jackson, Leighton, and Vaughan Williams–our opening concert invades Verizon Hall with British music! Experience the power and grandeur of these works for organ and chorus that just may have your seat rumbling… Tickets are available now at the Kimmel Center box office!
