STAMFORD – The enchanting sounds of organ and trumpet will fill the historic sanctuary of the First Presbyterian Church in Stamford, NY, as the sixth recital of the “Organ Music in the Catskills” concert series takes center stage.

The repertoire for the recital spans a range of festive works by renowned composers, including J.S. Bach, Couperin, Dupre, Guilmant, Howells, Stanley, and Telemann. The setting for this musical journey is the First Presbyterian Church, adorned with a historic sanctuary organ crafted by Hook and Hastings in 1891, presenting an unaltered example of early American organ building.
