About Saint Peter’s Organ Inauguration
Out of tragedy emerges a purposefully restored and reimagined world-class organ. Saint Peter’s invites all to join for a series of inaugural events, beginning with a weekend of programs featuring solo, orchestral, and choral literature. From children to long-time admirers, this organ comes alive in community— now is the time to be a part of giving to New York City an inspiring instrument for the future.
See the full program, including the history of the Sanctuary organ, the list of performers, and ways to give, on Saint Peter’s website.
