British Organ Invasion – Saturday, November 5th

November 5, MCC kicks off its 2016-2017 season in the Bri¬tish Isles, with British Organ Invasion, based on the remarkable tale of Christopher Smart, whose poem Jubilate Agno was written while he spent time in an insane asylum. Benjamin Britten’s brilliant cantata, Rejoice in the Lamb, captures this poem’s many moods with voice and organ. Alan Morrison will play the magnificent Fred J. Cooper Memorial Organ for this program at the Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall, and this special performance also includes the Keystone State Boychoir. www.mcchorus.org for more information
