Tonight’s performance in the sanctuary of First Baptist Church brings together the sonic splendor of the organ and the richness of the symphony orchestra for a concert experience you’ll remember for years to come. The first portion of the program focuses on American music: Samuel Barber’s Toccata festiva for organ and orchestra shares center stage with solo selections performed by Grammy-winning organist Nathan Laube. In the second half, we present Saint-Saëns’ monumental Symphony No. 3, the “Organ Symphony,” which brings to bear the awesome majesty of the King of Instruments in its final movement.
