A Spectacular Wanamaker Organ Hour on WRTI! September 6th at 5 PM

Sep 4, 2015

The Philadelphia Youth Orchestra is featured in this month's very special Wanamaker Organ Hour on WRTI. You'll hear highlights from Wanamaker Organ Day this past June - a thrilling day of music from the Grand Court at Macy's, with organist Peter Richard Conte.

The program includes the Festival Prelude for Organ and Orchestra by Richard Strauss, "Wotan's Farewell" and the "Magic Fire Music" from Wagner's Die Walkure in a special arrangement by Conte, and the adagietto from Mahler's 5th Symphony arranged for organ and orchestra. The broadcast culminates in the finale from Saint-Saens Symphony No. 3, the Organ Symphony. Maestro Louis Scaglione conducts the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra.

It's a riveting afternoon of music on this month's Wanamaker Organ Hour, Sunday, September 6th, 5 to 6 pm on WRTI.
