INTERNATIONAL LAUREATES ORGAN SERIES
For twenty-one seasons we have been honored to host many of the world’s finest organists. This season we welcome Johann Vexo (France), Colin Andrews (England), Namhee Han (S. Korea), and American organists David Ball (Christ Cathedral, Garden Grove), Caroline Robinson (Eastman School of Music), Adam Pajan (University of Oklahoma) and Michael Hey (St. Patrick’s Cathedral, NYC).
We invite you to experience great organ music played on the David John Falconer Memorial Organ (originally built in 1911 by Murray M. Harris). Comprising over 5,000 pipes in total, the organ is an important part of Los Angeles musical history and takes its place among the country’s most important and magnificent instruments.
These recitals are offered as a gift to the community free of charge and we are grateful to the Ahmanson Foundation and our Friends of Great Music for their continuing support.
