Classical Music | A Concert to Usher in the New Year


Ring in the new year with a fun and festive concert followed by a champagne reception at the stroke of midnight. Hear music from Bach and Vierne to Johann Strauss, Sr. and see it played with the console out front-and-center. With 225 ranks of pipes singing into the resplendent nave from both sides of the chancel, the rear gallery, and even the dome, the dynamic range and near-infinite color palette of the organ is an experience to behold in person, enveloped by one of the world's largest musical instruments.
