The Restoration of the pipe organ at Our Lady of Refuge Church is now complete thanks to the help and support from many. Boston Organist Mark Dwyer recorded Vierne's Scherzo from Symphony No. 2 on September 15, 2013 at Our Lady of Refuge in Brooklyn. We thank him for taking the time to come and record this work - as his donation to the organ restoration project. This is a unedited performance.
The pipe organ will be played in public for the first time since the restoration on October 18, 2013 at its dedication and blessing. Olivier Latry, one of the world's most celebrated organists, a titular at Notre-Dame Cathedral Paris will play the organ. Before the recital begins Bishop Nicholas Anthony DiMarzio, the Ordinary of Brooklyn, will bless the organ with Father Michael Perry, Pastor of Our Lady of Refuge Church using a catholic French blessing service - in which Olivier Latry will improvise on the organ in between short prayers.
You should buy your tickets in advance. The parish has already purchase a large number of tickets.
