St. Bartholomew’s Conservancy Gala Organ Concert

May 27, 2022

Tuesday’s Gala Organ Concert presented by St. Bartholomew’s Conservancy gave us 400 years of magnificent music in one extraordinary collaboration: The Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by David Robertson, with Organist and Choirmaster Paolo Bordignon, and Countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo, appearing courtesy of The Metropolitan Opera in a program featuring our magnificent pipe organ.

82 members of The Philadelphia Orchestra performed to a capacity crowd and the concert will be streamed online at a later date (more information forthcoming). Although the Orchestra was conducted by past St. Bartholomew’s Organist & Choirmaster Leopold Stokowski for 35 years, this was their first appearance at St. Bart’s.

Thank you to St. Bartholomew’s Conservancy for organizing this historic event which offered us a spectacular night celebrating music at St. Bart’s, and raised funds for the Conservancy to help with continuing restoration of the exterior of the church, specifically the West Façade.
