Nathan Laube Week (May 17 - 21) at the Cathedral

Mon., May 17, 2021 (All day) to Fri., May 21, 2021 (All day) ·

To celebrate the second anniversary of the rededication of the completed and fully realized Lively-Fulcher Great Organ of the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle, we will present a bouquet of five splendid newly-recorded organ pieces, with a 6am posting of each selection each day from Monday, May 17 through Friday, May 21, 2021 on the Cathedral’s YouTube channel.

Join us each morning at 6am or anytime thereafter to hear a virtuosic organ piece performed by Nathan Laube, our 2019 Great Organ Dedicatory Recitalist, recorded in the Cathedral earlier this spring. The recordings are impeccably engineered and edited for an optimum virtual recital experience. YouTube links to the recordings will be shared each day on our Facebook page. Don’t miss this!
