ORGAN CONCERT WITH JOHN ROMERI, DAVID BALL
Christ Cathedral is blessed with two of the world’s greatest organs: The Hazel Wright Organ in the Cathedral and the Fred Swann Organ in the Arboretum. As we anticipate the reinstallation of “Hazel,” we revel in the beauty of the 82-rank Aeolian-Skinner Organ, affectionately known as “Fred” in honor of Crystal Cathedral organist, Fred Swann, who was responsible for its installation. Principal Organist for this concert is David L. Ball, assistant director of music ministries. Also performing are director of music ministries, Dr. John Romeri and guest organist Fr. Christopher Smith, episcopal vicar and rector of Christ Cathedral. This is an evening you won’t want to miss!
