BACH

Tickets are selling swiftly for our spectacular fall Stokowski Bach/Widor tribute by calling Symphony in C at 856-963-6683 or by logging on to SymphonyinC.org HERE. Select your seats now for this eagerly anticipated event, from an array of attractive prices for all pocketbooks! Please note that the more desirable seats are toward the rear of the hall, where sound from the Organ and from the orchestra projects directly to the listener.

 
Hearing the Organ and Orchestra at night in the closed store is a sonic revelation, as the marble-and-glass acoustics provide a wonderful reverberance. As critics in 1919 put it, the Store is transformed miraculously into a “temple of thrilling harmonies and soaring epics of tone.” It is a musical experience available nowhere else on the face of the earth.
 
NEAR
STOKOWSKI

Also featured September 28 is a free chamber tour following the noon concert, and a special talk on Stokowski and Widor by Widor scholar John Near, held in Greek Hall at 2:30 pm and also free. Learn the fascinating background and musical significance of the wonderful music being presented that night. A limited supply of free food and refreshment will be offered for attendees!
