CONCERT - From Ocean to Ocean

Romantic Music for the Reed Organ on Grace Cathedral’s Indoor Labyrinth

Sunday 9 July 2017, 4:00 p.m.

 

Michael Hendron will perform a program of music with a maritime theme, all composed for the American reed organ and the German “Normal-Harmonium.” A restored Mason & Hamlin chapel organ, built in Boston in 1915, is the featured instrument. Tenor Kevin Baum will sing three sacred songs. Michael Hendron is the Assistant Verger at Grace Cathedral, and the current President of the Reed Organ Society. In San Francisco, he has performed at the Mission Dolores, and St. Dominic’s Catholic church. For 30 years, he has researched and performed music written for the American reed organ and the European harmonium. Many examples may be seen on his YouTube channel: Mustel1887.


Kevin Baum sings with the Choir of Men and Boys at Grace Cathedral, and is a cantor at St. Ignatius Catholic Church. Kevin is an auxiliary member of Philharmonia Baroque Chorale, and he sings solo and small ensemble concerts throughout the Bay Area. A founding member of the nine-voice male ensemble Clerestory, Kevin has performed with Chanticleer, Cappella SF, Endersnight, Schola Adventus, Pacific Collegium, Artists’ Vocal Ensemble, the Sanford Dole Ensemble, San Francisco Bach Chorus, San Francisco Lyric Chorus, and San Francisco Symphony Chorus.


This hour-long concert is free and open to the public.
