Organ Concert Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the Létourneau Pipe Organ with Scott Dettra
The Church of St. John the Divine celebrates the 10th Anniversary of its grand Létourneau pipe organ. Installed in 2005 by Orgues Létourneau Ltée, this particular instrument is the largest ever built by Létourneau as well as one of the largest pipe organs in the world. With its smallest pipe no bigger than a little finger, and its largest at more than 30 feet high, the Létourneau's galaxy of sounds can range from barely audible to a roar that fills the entire church.
To celebrate this anniversary, St. John the Divine hosts acclaimed organist Scott Dettra to present a concert of organ music. As one of the United States' foremost artists, Dettra will call upon a breathtaking array of sounds generated by the organ including strings, clarinets, oboes, flutes and trumpets.
