WorcesterAGO composers and improvisers are featured in a full-length concert

Several world premieres will be showcased, and the organ (solo as well as duets) will be joined/augmented with oboe, handbells, and choir to present an spectacular "multi-media" event with very listenable and tonal music, some of which you'll be the first to hear in performance, and some (improvisations) will never be heard again. Witness the creation of music in the moment.

The concert begins with an incredible Symphonic Improvisation by Peter Krasinski, includes a world premiere for organ duo by Robin Dinda, and concludes concludes with two compositions by Malcolm Halliday for choir & instruments.
