Emcee: Michael Barone

We’re pulling out all the stops for a full and mainly free Wanamaker Organ Day celebration Saturday September 25. Peter Richard Conte welcomes special guest Raul Prieto Ramirez from the Spreckels Organ in San Diego! The Evening Concert, starring Conte and Ramirez, includes a playing of Dupre’s powerhouse Symphonie-Passion as the musical wonderwork marks its 100th anniversary!

 

 

Friday Curt Mangel Salute

Precise details for the weekend can be found in the program accessible at left. The Saturday Morning concert will be streamcast live and for free at 11 am ET using the link from the banner directly above. Our plans for Friday include free organ and shop tours following the noon concert, an early (5 pm) Wanamaker Organ daily concert, and a catered, ticketed wine and hors-d’oeuvres event in Greek Hall that pays tribute to retired curator Curt Mangel—still an active member of the Friends team.

Saturday 9 AM Restoration Presentation

Saturday activities call for a 9 A.M. showing of our Wanamaker Organ Yearbook documentary on the big screens in Greek Hall. Light refreshments will be served. The film includes fascinating segments on the Organ Case and Eagle restoration, plus lots of behind-the-scenes project footage and a feature on Macy’s and Philadelphia during the lockdown. Meet in the Juniper Street Lobby.

Saturday Artist: Rudy Lucente

Then at 11 the free Grand Opening Concert features Peter Richard Conte and his associate organists. Thrill to performances by Rudy Lucente, Dylan David Shaw, Mark Bani, Colin Howland and Aaron Patterson as the Organ’s massive sonic resources are unleashed from the organ flight deck, in a program in memory of longtime Friends supporter Michael McDermott. Prepare for goosebumps!

John Baratta Sat. 2pm
Buster Keaton “Go West” Comedy!

At 2 pm John Baratta takes command of our Mighty Wurlitzer in Greek Hall, in a program of music from the Great American Songbook, with a silent short. A nominal admission is charged at the door.

Following the Wurlitzer concert are free Wanamaker Organ pipe-chamber tours and an opportunity to visit our Wanamaker Organ museum, Hall of Flags and restoration studios.

Bill Bragg

At 5 pm, Philadelphia Brass adds its blazing resources to the mighty Wanamaker in a program presented in memory of YesterdayUSA’s beloved Bill Bragg.

Then at 8 pm, an evening of electrifying entertainment begins with a brief film as the closed store quiets for the night. Raul Prieto Ramirez , the hugely popular master of San Diego’s famous outdoor pipe organ,

Big Screen Closed Circuit Video

shares the stage with Mr. Conte for the ticketed Grand Evening Concert, held in the closed Macy’s.

Included is Mr. Conte’s sensational centennial performance of the electrifying Dupré Symphonie-Passion.

The powerhouse work is a testament to musical genius that staggered all present when a polished musical symphony spontaneously burst forth from four previously unseen musical themes, in a Grand Court improvisation exactly a century ago. The concert concludes at 9:50 pm.

John Binsfeld

This special evening program is presented in loving memory of longtime assistant Wanamaker Organist John Binsfeld.

For those staying over through Sunday we will have more organ chamber and Shop tours, at 11 am and again at 2 pm. In-between the Wanamaker Organ Sonic Odyssey film will be shown in Greek Hall. Visitors will also have an opportunity of seeing shop projects in progress, and viewing the organ console.

During the pandemic we all have been deprived of the beauty of music that comes unfiltered through actual acoustic instruments. The sound of the Wanamaker Grand Organ is like nothing on earth and no virtual experience can fully capture the majesty and grandeur of hearing it in person. That is even more so at night time, when the finer details are revealed in all their magnificence, and artists can unleash the Organ’s full power with reckless abandon. The result: sublime beauty that thrills to the core!

Look for further details  as plans are finalized! Please mark your calendars nowand look to this space for exciting updates!
