“A Concert of Polish Organ Music”: St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church.
Columbia University organ professor Gail Archer, heralded by New York Music Daily as “a trailblazing organist and rescuer of undeservedly obscure repertoire,” performs her new album Cantius, a collection of 19th-, 20th-, & 21st-century Polish organ music recorded at St. John Cantius Church (Chicago). Program highlights include Henryk Górecki’s brooding and modern Kantata for Organ, and Feliks Nowowiejski’s expansive Symphony No. 8 for Organ. St. Francis of Assisi, 2250 E. Stadium. Free; donations welcome. 769-2550.
