The famous Wanamaker Organ was installed in John Wanamaker's Philadelphia department store back in 1911. One hundred years later, Macy's Grand Court Organist Peter Richard Conte was accompanied by Symphony in C in the celebratory Wanamaker Organ Centennial Concert, which was recorded and released on CD last year.
Join us on Sunday, October 4th from 5 to 6 pm to hear an encore broadcast of the music from this special occasion.
Alexandre Guilmant: Symphony No. 2, Op 91, for organ and orchestra
Joseph Jongen: Hymn, Op 78, for organ and strings
