Join us for PEISO Presents: A Mighty Wind - A Celebration of Music for Brass and Organ.

About this event

2:30pm on Sunday, June 13th at St. Paul's Catholic Parish Church in Summerside. Suggested Donation $20.00.

Naming the PEI Symphony’s upcoming concert featuring brass and organ as “A Mighty Wind” may seem a misnomer, until one realizes that the pipe organ is actually a wind instrument. Musical instruments are largely defined by how their sound is created. Although the organ console may resemble a keyboard both in appearance and in execution, the sound is the result of air flowing through pipes, much like a gargantuan pan flute.

The program, which will be performed by Basilica organist Leo Marchildon and the Charlottetown Brass Ensemble, led by Gregory Irvine, will feature a chronological sampling of music arranged for brass and organ over the years. Ranging from the Italian 16th century composer Giovanni Gabrieli to the 20th century German composer Sigfrid Karg-Elert, an eclectic collection of joyous choruses, marches, and processions will delight the ear and heart. Highlights include Handel’s Organ Concerto, Op. 4, #2 in Bb major, and Josef Rheinberger’s romantic Organ Concerto #1, Op.137 in F major. Also on the program is a smattering of pieces by Purcell, Marcello, Gigout, and Richard Strauss.
