The pipeorgans on Nantucket are pulling out all their stops for Nantucket Community Music Center’s (NCMC) Holidays in Music: A Parade of Nantucket’s Pipe Organs!
This 90-minute broadcast on NCTV18 and streamed online, premiering Friday, November 27th right after the tree lighting, is the virtual equivalent of NCMC’s 29th Annual Organ Crawl. The program features the island’s six mechanical-action pipe organs and highlights music from end-of-year holidays – Thanksgiving through New Year — showcasing the American flare of Thanksgiving, the anticipation and festivity of Christmas, the exuberant ringing-in of the New Year…and much more!
Performing on the organs, four of which are over 100 years old, are Nantucket organists Jeff Cutts, Joe Hammer and Isaiah Williams, joined by renowned guest organist and composer Carson Cooman. The instruments, the oldest dating to 1831 and the newest to 2001, are housed in the First Congregational Church, St. Mary’s – Our Lady of the Isle, St. Paul’s (Episcopal), United Methodist Church and The Unitarian-Universalist Church.
