Erben Organ Days 2020: Organ & Trumpet Recital

On August 2, 2020 Friends of the Erben Organ presented a recital featuring Angela Gosse, trumpet soloist, and Jared Lamenzo on the historic Erben organ. This Erben Organ Days 2020 series recital was live-streamed via YouTube and received an enthusiastic response via chat comments.

A lovely selection of pieces and wonderful playing of the organ and the trumpet. Thanks to all.

Angela shows her two different trumpets to the live-stream audience

Angela played two trumpets of different sizes and showed their differences and similarities to each other, as well as to the “trumpet” stops of the Erben. Our events this year combined the recitals and the educational aspect, blending seamlessly and providing interest to children and adults alike.

A welcome interlude on a sultry summer afternoon. Thank you

We were particularly pleased to have been able to offer this program to the senior citizens at the lower Manhattan’s Brookdale Senior Living center. They were able to watch it live, while socially distanced and safe.
