One of the outstanding events of Music Week has always been the Organ Recitals. This year will be no exception. However, we will be enjoying these concerts virtually due to COVID. We are blessed to have performances from four gifted organists.
Beautiful St. Michael’s Cathedral in downtown Boise has been involved with Boise Music Week for a long time. It was there in 1919, that Eugene Farner, who was the Music Director and Organist, came up with the idea of having free music concerts in our community. St. Michael’s has always supported Boise Music Week and our organists’ recitals have been held there at Noon for many years. However this year St. Michael’s was under renovation and only one of our organists’ performances was under its roof. So another long time supporter and host of BMW’s Church Night for decades, Cathedral of the Rockies has given 2 of our organists access to their pipes. Our 4th organist, performs from the Holy Trinity in Stratford-upon-Avon in England.
Boise Music Week thanks each of these 3 churches for their support.
