Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia opens its 140th anniversary season with a program of great works for chorus and organ from the early and mid-twentieth century including Benjamin Britten’s Festival Te Deum and Jubilate Deo, in honor of his birth centenary, and from the great French organ tradition, Louis Vierne’s Messe Solennelle and Marcel Dupré’s Four Motets. The program concludes with two works with American connections: Charles Ives’ setting of Psalm 90, and Zóltan Kodály’s Laudes Organi, commissioned from the Hungarian composer by the American Guild of Organists. Featuring organist Michael Stairs, commentator Michael Barone of American Public Media’s Pipedreams and the Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ, the largest mechanical-action concert organ in the United States, celebrate our 140 years during this special Kimmel Center appearance.
