Chris Stroh, Basilica Organist

70th Anniversary of the dedication of The Basilica’s “Centennial” organ.

The program includes musical highlights from the original October 15, 1950 dedication program by J. S. Bach and Edmond Lemaigre. A variety of contemporary organ works will additionally be featured and are based on musical themes calling to mind The Basilica’s mission of outreach, inter-faith initiatives, radical hospitality, and the ongoing work toward social justice. Featured 20th- and 21st-century composers—Cooman, Diemer, Freed, Moore, Phillips, and Sowerby—represent a diverse cultural cross-section of American organ composition.
