The Madison Symphony Orchestra (MSO) will host a free organ concert during the Dane County Farmers’ Market on Saturday, June 18, at 11 a.m. in Overture Hall, 201 State Street. No tickets or reservations are needed for this 45-minute concert featuring guest AdrianBinkley.jpgorganist Adrian Binkley.
Adrian Binkley, a young organist from Madison, Wisconsin and a student of MSO Principal Organist Samuel Hutchison recently won first place in the national Albert Schweitzer Organ Competition, being one of only three finalists chosen from high school organists across the United States. He also recently won a full scholarship to the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and has previously studied at the Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan. His exciting program includes the music of Bossi, Dupré, Widor and others.
The MSO and Overture Center for the Arts present the Farmers’ Market Concert Series in partnership with the Wisconsin State Journal/Madison.com. Support for all Overture Concert Organ programs is provided by the Diane Endres Ballweg Fund. With a gift from Pleasant T. Rowland, the Madison Symphony Orchestra commissioned the Overture Concert Organ, which is the stunning backdrop of all MSO concerts.
