Copied URL to clipboard

To celebrate the sesquicentennial of Louis Vierne's birth, Eric Plutz will present all six of the composer's symphonies on the Aeolian organ in a pair of recitals. This rare two-part event in Duke Chapel is not to be missed. University Organist at Princeton, Plutz has appeared at distinguished venues throughout the United States and in Europe. A review of one of his solo recordings exclaimed, "Plutz is a master craftsman . . . his performances are sensitive, emotional, stunningly accurate, and spectacularly musical . . . truly a world-class performance by a world-class musician" (The Diapason). 

The first recital will take place on Saturday, January 25, at 8:00 p.m. and will last about two hours.

The second recital will take place the next day, Sunday, January 26, at 5:15 p.m. and will last about two hours.

Admission is free. Event parking is available for $5 in the Bryan Center Parking Garage at 125 Science Drive; ADA parking is available in the Bryan Center Surface Lot at the same address.
