Leo Abbott to Perform First Post-renovation Concert on Opus 801
September 15 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Cathedral’s enormous E. & G. G. Hook & Hastings Opus 801 pipe organ will once again play after two years of silence. More than 2,000 of the instrument’s 5,300+ pipes were removed and stored off-site as the instrument was protected during the renovation. After remaining silent during the two-year interior renovation of the Cathedral, the historic Opus 801 will now sound again as it has never been heard in our lifetimes in this transformed acoustical environment!
Leo D. Abbott, FAGO, Ch.M., Music Director Emeritus of the Cathedral, will perform the first organ concert on Opus 801 following its restoration on Sunday, September 15, 2019 at 3 p.m.—the external, patronal feast of the Cathedral. » Details here.
