Free Hymn Sing with MSO
March 8, 2014 @ 11:00 am
The Madison Symphony Orchestra (MSO) will offer a free Hymn Sing to the public in Overture Hall, 201 State Street on Sat., March 8, at 11 a.m. All ages are welcome to join in singing hymns with music provided live on the Overture Concert Organ, originally the gift of Pleasant T Rowland.
Mark Brampton-Smith, accompanist for the Wisconsin Chamber Choir, will perform on the Overture Concert Organ for the duration of the program. No tickets or reservations are needed for the free Hymn Sing, which will last approximately 45 minutes.
With a gift from the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation, the Madison Symphony Orchestra commissioned the Overture Concert Organ, which is the stunning backdrop of all MSO concerts. MSO Principal Organist, Samuel Hutchison, programs and curates it. In addition to the Free Farmers’ Market Concerts, the instrument is featured in the MSO Christmas and April 2014 concerts along with three Free Community Hymn Sings and a Christmas Carol Sing.
