What makes Around the World in 80 Minutes so attractive? Our slogan is : “Hear & See the Inspired Sounds of the Globe”
I can’t promise you’ll lose weight, but there are many other personal benefits you’ll enjoy.
Around the World in 80 Minutes – a fast-moving concert that features unique global organ repertoire by native composers, and is as exciting as it sounds.
A great journey around the world that transcends the boundaries of countries, religions, nationalities, time periods and styles. Bringing people together through music, visuals and the grandeur of the organ. Celebrating the fascinating diversity of the music of the world.
Performed with Jeannine’s brilliant playing and accompanied by creative registrations unveiling sounds from the organ you may not previously have not made visible their voice.
Visually, there are animations of animals, dancers, music, vids of Jeannine in a fly-suit?, travel, inside of a cathedral, world recognized landmarks, live cameras on Jeannine’s hands (left and right), feet (left and right), and as narrator.
Since Jeannine visited all of the six continents and most of the countries represented there are great anecdotes about her visits
From a travel stand-point you’ll cross over some of the highest mountains, and driest deserts. Visit sheep in New Zealand, parrots in the Brazilian rainforest and 4th of July in the USA.
I can’t seem to function without humor, so there is a good sprinkling of that too. Who’s in the Queens carriage?
Yes, This all happens in 80 minutes. As we quote one Southwest flight attendant: ‘Fasten your seats belts because we are going to go REALLY fast.”
