Sweelinck in Italy
October 15 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDTFree
The Westminster Organ Concert Series continues in-person concerts on Friday, October 15, at 7:30 pm, with a concert of music celebrating the 400th anniversary of the death of the great Dutch organist and composer, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck. The program, entitled “Sweelinck in Italy,” traces the influence of Italian music in Sweelinck’s vocal and keyboard music and in that of his students. Organist Jonathan Schakel is joined by the Zephyrus Early Music Vocal Ensemble for this program. The concert is free and open to the public and may be followed by a reception, weather permitting. Masks are required.
Westminster Presbyterian Church is located at 400 Rugby Road in Charlottesville. Ample parking is available behind the church, and the sanctuary is wheelchair-accessible.
The Westminster Organ Concert Series was begun in 1980 to share the newly installed all-mechanical baroque-style pipe organ with the community. The organ, built by Taylor & Boody Organbuilders of Staunton, Virginia, has 18 stops and over 1100 pipes.
