Tuning and Temperament: An Organ Workshop

Maria Zengion will be leading an interesting presentation on organ tuning and the various temperaments that have been historically used. You might have heard, and not necessarily understood or remembered, some of the various tuning systems that have been implemented over the past few centuries. This presentation will provide you with the background to better understand the implications and challenges of playing various organ literature, as well as the tuning intricacies that can affect tonality/pitch matching for choirs and instrumentalists.


The presentation will begin at St. Luke’s Episcopal in downtown Scranton and then travel across the street to St. Peter’s Cathedral. Please plan to attend this exciting event on Tuesday, September 28, 2021 at 7:00 PM. The favor of a reply is appreciated so we can plan for the appropriate number of attendees. Thank you!
