This preview has been provided by St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church Concert Series.

On Sunday, April 26, at 4:00 pm, Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Strings, and Tympani will be the featured work on the annual Frank Hawkins Kenan Memorial Organ Recital. The concert will take place at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church at 82 Kimberly Drive, Durham. The organ soloist will be the brilliant young concert organist, Dongho Lee. Joining her in the Poulenc will be the full string section of the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, conducted by Lorenzo Muti. 

During the Poulenc the audience will be enveloped in sound. From the rear will come the thrilling sounds of the church’s Flentrop organ which is located in the West end balcony. From the front will come the lush sound of the strings, located on the main floor at the East end of the nave.

Organ and strings will be heard in two additional works, an organ concerto by Handel (Op. 4, No. 2) and the famous Adagio by Albinoni. Works for solo organ by J. S. Bach, Kenneth Leighton, and Guy Bovet will complete the program.

The recital, which closes the current season of the St. Stephen’s Concert Series, is a homecoming of sorts, since the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle evolved years ago from the St. Stephen’s Chamber Orchestra.

Tickets ($25, cash or check only) will be available at the door. Admission is free for those 18 or under. For this concert there will be no Pre-Concert Discussion.
