1887 Mason & Hamlin Liszt foot pump organ


Time:              4 pm


Tickets:          $20 general


$15 Students/Seniors


Tickets available at the door


                       


Performers:


Artis Wodehouse, antique American keyboards


Lorri McCann, soprano


George Spitzer baritone


 


Program:


Organ works by 19th-century American composers Chadwick, Foote and Ives


Chinese Songs by Charles Tomlinson Griffes


Vocal Selections by 19th-century American composer Amy Marcy Beach


 


Description:


MELODEON presents the first of three concerts during the 2012-13 season at Church of the Epiphany, York Avenue at East 74th St., NYC, on Sunday, November 11 at 4 p.m.  Keyboardist Artis Wodehouse will play rarely-heard selections on her completely restored 1887 Liszt foot-pump organ, in works by American composers George Chadwick, Arthur Foote and Charles Ives.  Vocal works on the program include Chinese songs by Charles Tomlinson Griffes sung by baritone George Spitzer, and selections by Amy Beach, a ground-breaking woman composer from 19th-century America sung by soprano Lorri McCann.


MELODEON performs music from 19th- and early 20th-century America using period antique instruments from keyboardist Artis Wodehouse’s collection.  Ms. Wodehouse, (cited by The New York Times as “savior of the old and neglected”) has collected and restored a group of largely forgotten and rarely heard antique keyboard instruments.  She formed MELODEON in 2011 to present unusual and rarely-performed 19th-century American music.  Baritone George Spitzer and soprano Lorri McCann are joining Wodehouse for the November concert.
