Union Chapel will begin its first series of celebrations recognizing the 150th year of the chapel by dedicating the rebuilt and totally refurbished 1924 Austin Organ. Minister of Music Bill Peek has selected internationally acclaimed organist Alcee Chriss 3rd to deliver the dedication recital. It will take place on August 4 at 7:30 p.m. Chriss hails from Dallas, Tex., where he was exposed to music at an early age in his father’s church. He studied at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music before pursuing his Ph.D in music at McGill University. He appeared in Stacey Tenenbaum‘s 2019 documentary Pipe Dreams and was the winner of the 2019 Canadian International Organ Competition. Alcee has joined the faculty at Wesleyan University as university organist and artist-in-residence. See you there!
