Acclaimed organist Christopher Houlihan joins the Hartford Symphony Orchestra, Carolyn Kuan conducting, in the Opening Concert of the 2019 Albert Schweitzer Organ Festival Hartford. The program includes the thrilling and notoriously difficult Symphonie Concertante for organ and orchestra by Joseph Jongen. Mr. Houlihan, described as “one of the brightest stars in the new generation of American organists,” will also perform music by Bach and Widor (the opening movement of the Sixth Symphony). The program includes the fourth movement of Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5 in D Major and an orchestral portrait of Albert Schweitzer by Gene Scheer, narrated by NEPR classical host John Nowacki. Pre-concert talk one hour before each performance. Tickets $35-$55 at
