Now in its 23rd season, the Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival Hartford brings some of the world’s best young organists to Hartford to perform – and compete – on the renowned 5,000-pipe Austin organ at Trinity College Chapel. To bookend the 2019 Festival competition, acclaimed concert organist Christopher Houlihan, a past winner of the Festival, and the Hartford Symphony Orchestra (Carolyn Kuan, Music Director), present two performances of the epic Symphonie Concertante for grand organ and orchestra by Joseph Jongen. Mr. Houlihan, who has been described as “one of the brightest stars in the new generation of American organists,” will also perform organ works by Bach and Widor (the opening movement of the Sixth Symphony). The program also includes two movements of Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5 in D Major and an orchestral portrait of Albert Schweitzer by Gene Scheer. Carolyn Kuan will join Mr. Houlihan in presenting a 30-minute talk an hour before the start of each program.
