Celebrate the 400th Anniversary of the Mayflower

We are all in for a monumental celebration in 2020. You have the opportunity to share the historical dramatic organ concert From Sea to Shining Sea with your eager and engaged audience to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower! Join us, take your audience by the hand and lead them off the Mayflower into the wilderness of the colonies.

Bring them along to the first recorded use of an organ in a church service in 1703. Then we all get on an oxcart with Brother Wilhelm Grabs and deliver a new organ 400 miles to a church in Wachovia, North Carolina. The story is narrated by Mayflower descendant Dr. Jeannine Jordan. She will take your thoroughly engaged audience through the incredible, dramatic, musical, visual, and oral history of the organ making its way from the early colonies to the instrument of today.

Travel with us through the Battle of Trenton led by George Washington and his Continental Army.

Attend a fashionable wedding in Charleston.
Your audience will be thrilled with this live presentation. We use 5 cameras, computers, video and a cinematic screen to bring you and your audience into the story of the pipe organ in the Colonies and the new United States. Contact us now at david@promotionmusic.org to plan the event.

Living History – the Brattle Organ

David and I performed our “From Sea to Shining Sea,” concert in Providence RI. As part of the program we refer to the “Brattle House Organ,” and show an image of it because it has historical significance. After the program a person introduced themselves and said, “if you have the time, you should go and see the Brattle organ, it’s in Portsmouth NH at St John’s Episcopal Church.”

Well that was too good to pass up so we went up, I played this wonderful little organ while David took pictures. It is hard to describe the feeling of seeing, hearing, and playing a piece of history from 1711. That part of our program will never be the same again.
