St John Virtual Organ Concert

Sunday, September 13,2020 at 1:00pm Central Time

Organ Concert with Live Commentary

The Sanfilippo Foundation brings you another organ virtual concert, this time, on an historic 1885 Organ from St. John's United Church of Christ, in Palatine, Illinois. We feel seeing and hearing this organ will bring you a greater appreciation of organs and the music played on the early ones. This is an early "Tracker" organ which later graduated to the development of the theater organ, like the Sanfilippo Wurlitzer and others. Please enjoy the song selections from our Organist Nicholas Renkosik, as he demonstrates some Bach, some hymnal selections, and more. Also included in the video is a video of how this particular organ functions.

Donations accepted through Sanfilippo Foundation on behalf of St. John United Church of Christ in Palatine, Illinois (corner or Algonquin Rd and Roselle Rd). Proceeds benefit St. John's 1885 Organ Maintenance Fund and New Windows Fund. Any amount is appreciated.

Concert arranged and provided by the Sanfilippo Foundation and St. John UCC. Organist Nicholas Renkosik is donating his performance, and Video and Sound production is donated by Zach Frame and C-2 Productions.
