Joseph Ripka Organ Recital (Open to the Public)
On Thursday, March 2 at 7pm, award-winning international concert organist Joseph Ripka will give a Benefit Organ Recital as part of our Music Committee’s fundraising program. This recital is in memory of composer-organist Harvey Burgett, who was dear to all at First Church Boston. Mr. Ripka will be playing a repertoire especially chosen for First Church Boston’s 3-manual Casavant Frères Organ Opus 3140 1972.
Among many accolades and concerts, Mr. Ripka won First Prize at the 2008 Dublin International Organ Competition by unanimous decision of the jury, and has performed with the Boston Symphony under Michael Tilson Thomas.
This concert is free and open to the public.
