Grace Church Presents:

The A. David Moore Organ 40th Birthday Concert

A Duo Organ Recital with

Francine Maté

and

Salvatore Pronestì

Dear Grace Friends,

It gives me great pleasure to announce that in honor of the 40th birthday of our A. David Moore organ, Italian concert organist, Salvatore Pronestì and I will perform a duo organ recital at Grace Church on Thursday, October 28 at 7:30 p.m. The recital will be a free event, however we will gratefully accept donations. These donations will go to the Grace Church Organ Fund. Please note that there will be free 2 hour parking at the Colonial Garage for AMC Cinema at 3171 K Street that evening.

Those of you who were able to view all the concerts in our Virtual Bach Festival will remember Italian concert organist, Salvatore Pronestì. Salvatore is from Sant’Onofrio, Italy, and is not only a concert organist, but is also an organ builder who specializes in the construction, restoration, and maintenance of pipe organs, including historical organs. His firm, Bottega Organaria, is based in Sant’Onofrio.

Currently, Salvatore is in the midst of a big concert tour. He is now in Germany preparing to play 2 recitals in Hamburg and Lüneburg. However, he began this tour several weeks ago in Ukraine, and will return to Ukraine for concerts on September 1, 4, and 5. He will complete his tour at Lausanne Cathedral in Lausanne, Switzerland on September 10.

Salvatore is well known for his improvisations, and he will perform a new improvisation just for the birthday celebration of our organ, in addition to some of his previous improvisations.

Since our recital is in honor of the birthday of our organ, Salvatore and I are planning a program that will not be a typical classical music organ recital. We will each play solo works, but we will also perform some very fun organ duets! These duets should not only be fun listening for you, but will be fun for us to play as well.

Please mark Thursday, October 28, 7:30 on your calendars to attend this very special event at Grace Church.

Thank you,
Francine
