Music at the Town Hall

 

Not Just Another

Organ Concert!

 

Just a brief word about something a little different!   On February 6, 2012,  the Mozingo Fund of the Indianapolis Chapter of the American Guild of Organists and Reynolds Associates jointly converted the stately sanctuary of North United Methodist Church in Indianapolis into an old town hall.  That afternoon, Randall Frieling, Martin Ellis, and the Rinati Brass played a program of fun music, not-necessarily-for-the-church. 

The program included music for organ, piano, brass, and just about every combiation of the three you can imagine.  Some of the selections included Dvorak's Slavonic Dance No. 1 in C Major,  Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, and scenes for Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. 

 

The concert was for edification, but mostly for fun, and recalled the days before tv and radio, when folks went down to the Town Hall on Sunday afternoon to hear the local talent play great music on whatever instruments they had available.  There were many wonderful pipe organs in the town halls and coliseums of America, and music didn't have to be Popular to be popular.

 

What a fun afternoon!  Let's do it again soon.
