Historic Organ Concert

Historic Organ Concert

Sunday, August 6, 2023, 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm
First Parish Unitarian Church, Main and Parker Street

Gary Garletts will once again make the historic organ at First Parish sing. Gary is the Artistic Director for the Chester County Choral Society. Click here for more information about Gary.

Along with playing some American music of the first half of the 19th century (the period when the organ was built), and other general "popular" organ pieces, there would be a few hymn arrangements and perhaps some audience participation.

First Parish's historic organ (The Hook) is one of the oldest unaltered two-manual organs in the country. It was built in 1842 and arrived at First Parish in 1870. Garletts has been Director of Music and organist at Ardmore Presbyterian Church since 1997.
