We had another really wonderful experience at Grace Episcopal Church in Elmira, NY.
The superb organ in this gorgeous church was built by Fr. Richard Strauss. It was a really nicely balanced organ and showed itself well in what the Director of Music Gerald Wolfe calls the miniature cathedral. The acoustics of the space were truly perfect for the organ. It is such a pleasure to play lovely organs around our great country and to have the opportunity to meet and talk with the builders of the instruments.
The concert was part of the Music at Grace Recital Series and was co-sponsored by the Chemung Valley Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.
Dan LaBar, Dean of the Chemung Valley AGO, had this to say about their experience with “From Sea to Shining Sea.”
