Sunday, October 10th at 5pm, National Presbyterian Church organist William Neil and friends present a free gala concert celebrating the 40th anniversary of the great Aeolian-Skinner organ. Custom-designed to fit into the church's acoustic space, the organ now boasts a total of 115 ranks, with a newly-installed Solo Division that will be featured in the concert. Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton spoke with Bill Neil and organ curator Michael Hart about this magnificent instrument, which you can hear, thanks to Bill recording several works for this Classical Conversation.
