    That evening, Jeremy Flood, another of the Assistant Grand Court Organists, played the hour-long 7:00 PM concert. The program included works by Dubois, Grainger, Handel, Walton, and Louis Vierne, who actually played the Wanamaker organ during his life time.

    Wanamaker Organ Centenary Part 2

    After returning to the hotel for the evening and catching up on our sleep, we were back in the Grand Court Saturday morning at 10 AM, for the first of several special programs that day. Organists Michael Stairs and Colin Howland played works by Tchaikovsky, Stanley, Vierne, and Karg-Elert. Immediately following at 11:30 a live broadcast from the Grand Court took place on WRTI-FM. The previous organists were joined by organists Peter Richard Conte, Rudy Lucent, and Peter Krasinski with works by Strauss and Reubke among others.

    After a quick lunch, it was back to the store and Greek Hall to watch the D.W. Griffith silent classic, Way Down East, starring Lillian Gish and accompanied on the Wurlitzer by Peter Krasinski. This is a really a remarkable and entertaining film, at times serious, at times funny, and at times exciting, that had the audience literally cheering at times. Peter Krasinski did a fantastic job on the Wurlitzer beginning the program with a transcription of the Poet and Peasant OvertureZadok the PriestAmerica the Beautiful and The National Anthem. But the main event of the day was yet to come.

    After the store closed for the evening, ticket holders were allowed back in the store for a special after hours concert featuring Peter Richard Conte at the organ and Jeremy Filsell at the piano for a performance of the Rachmaninoff 2ndRosenkavalier SuitendthClick image for larger version
