The Vierne Project Marathon | Thursday, October 8th, 2020 starting at 4:00 p.m. EDT
In 2009, Princeton University Organist Eric Plutz had the wild idea of performing all the Vierne Symphonies at the Princeton University Chapel on the 150th birthday of Louis Vierne. This year, he’s made that a reality.
Join us on October 8th as the Vierne Project Marathon is released online, as each symphony premieres on the hour:
Symphony I at 4:00 p.m. (EDT)
Symphony II at 5:00 p.m. (EDT)
Symphony III at 6:00 p.m. (EDT)
Symphony IV at 7:00 p.m. (EDT)
Symphony V at 8:00 p.m. (EDT)
Symphony VI at 9:00 p.m. (EDT)
You can watch it on:
Pop some popcorn, pour some wine, or follow along in your scores – make an event of it!
Please forward this email to any friends who might be interested in hearing these unedited, live, recorded performances of widely varied music. From somber to uplifting and from bereft to joyful, may the music of Vierne live on for another 150 years! Vive Vierne!
