The public is invited. Admission is free.
Davis will be performing on both the Pels Gallery Organ and the Skinner Chancel Organ. Performing first on the Pels Gallery Organ, she will play “Toccata in D minor, BuxWV 155,” by Dieterich Buxtehude; variations on the tune “Est-ce Mars?,” by Jan Pieterszoon Sweenlinck; “Orgelbuechlein – O Mensch, beweindeinSuende gross, BWV 622,” by Johann Sebastian Bach; and “Toccata and Fugue in F Major, BWV 540,” by Johann Sebastian Bach. Following intermission, Davis will perform three pieces on the Skinner Chancel Organ: “Pièces de Fantaisie – Toccata,” by Louis Vierne; “Choral III in A minor,” by César Franck; and “Esquisses Byzantines – (Byzantine Sketches)” (“Nef,” “Vitrail,” “Rosace” and “Tuespetra”), by Henri Mulet.
The recital at Hope was made possible through the generous support of the college’s Tom Donia Memorial Organ Fund. The fund was created in 1990 by family and friends of Tom Donia, a 1971 Hope graduate who died in 1990. The director of communications for the American Red Cross, Donia had a life-long interest in music.
