St. Bartholomew’s Conservancy Gala Organ Concert
June 29 @ 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
St. Bartholomew’s Conservancy presents The Philadelphia Orchestra in a Gala Concert of organ compositions from Bach to Saint-Saëns, Elgar to Beach – Monday, June 29, 2020 at 7:00 p.m. in the nave of St. Bartholomew’s Church, 325 Park Avenue, New York. David Robertson will conduct. Paolo Bordignon, St. Bartholomew’s Organist and Choirmaster, will perform on the largest pipe organ in New York City (12,400+ pipes), including its so-called “Celestial Division” housed in the newly restored Great Dome.
The Gala evening will begin with a cocktail reception at 6:00 p.m. and conclude with a post-concert dinner honoring Barbaralee Diamonstein-Spielvogel and Mutual of America Financial Services for their support of restoring and preserving the St. Bartholomew’s site. The dinner will take place on the 35th Floor of The Mutual of America Building, 320 Park Avenue, directly across from the concert venue. The evening will support the ongoing work of the St. Bartholomew’s Conservancy, including launching the Conservancy’s Square Foot Campaign, initially focused on helping fund restoration of the Church Building’s much deteriorated North Façade.
