In conjunction with its Center-supported project Playing and Preserving, Partners for Sacred Places presents a free community concert inspired by the importance of the pipe organ as a center of community and musical life. The evening will feature cellist Thomas Mesa, organist Greg Zelek, and Play On, Philly! cello ensemble. The concert is presented in collaboration with Astral Artists and Play On, Philly!.
Prior to the concert, audience members are invited to participate in two “Experience Stations” that focus on learning more about the organ. Additional concerts are taking place on October 25 and December 21.
