A Celebration of the Casavant Pipe Organ

Cathedral organist and AGO Pennsylvania Northeast chapter member Robert Wech, a graduate of the Oberlin Music Conservatory, Oberlin, OH, and a church organist with 49 years of experience, will present “A Celebration of the Casavant Pipe Organ,” on Friday, October 9, 8:00 p.m. at St. Peter’s Cathedral, 315 Wyoming Ave., Scranton. The concert commemorates the 30th anniversary of the installation of the Casavant pipe organ at the Cathedral. Mr. Wech will feature works of Clerambault, Bach, Mendelssohn, and Franck. A free will offering will be received to support St. Peter’s Cathedral. This organ replicates those built in the 1700’s. The blower that provides the air for the pipes is the only electrically-powered device on the organ, everything else is mechanical, making it unusual. For information please call the Cathedral at 570-344-7231.
