Furman Hartness Organ Series Opens With Recital For Organ & Strings

The 2017-18 Hartness Organ Series will open September 14 at 8 p.m. in Daniel Memorial Chapel on the Furman campus in Greenville with a recital for organ and strings performed by organist Dongho Lee, and New England Conservatory of Music faculty members Nicholas Kitchen, violinist, and Yeesun Kim, cellist. The recital highlights works for the unusual combination of organ and strings. Lee will perform works on the C.B. Fisk Opus 121 (three manuals, 42 stops) organ housed in Daniel Chapel. The program includes Vitali’s “Chaconne” for violin and organ, Bruch’s “Canzone” for cello and organ, and two works for violin, cello, and organ: Saint-Saëns’ “La Muse et le Poéte,” and Rheinberger’s “Trio” Opus 149. Tickets $5 – $15.
