RCORS Presents the Eastman Five: In Virtual Concert

 

 

 

The Rochester Celebrity Organ Recital Series (RCORS) is administered by the Rochester AGO Chapter,

collaborating with the Eastman School of Music, WXXI, and several local churches.

 

Together we bring to Rochester some of today’s leading concert organists to perform on our wide array

of pipe organs.

 

Past performers have included Olivier Latry, Cherry Rhodes, and Thomas Trotter, among many others.

As part of the collaboration, usually one of the concerts is performed by a member of the Eastman organ faculty

as a benefit for the series.

 

The twofold aim of RCORS entails engaging the artist in a public recital as well as in a pedagogical setting.

Eastman organ students have the opportunity to interact directly with the visiting organist in a masterclass

in which players typically choose repertoire geared towards the artist's specialty or area of expertise.

Though intended for participation by Eastman organ students, Rochester AGO Chapter members and the general public are welcome and encouraged to attend these masterclasses for an enhanced weekend of pipe organ discovery!

This virtual concert is free and available for viewing for one week after the premier date at rocago.org/rcors. Suggested donations of $12 are welcome.
