Chicago Gargoyle Brass and Organ Ensemble: "French Reverence"



For its season finale, the Chicago Gargoyle Brass and Organ Ensemble celebrates French music of the late 19th and early 20th centuries in a one-time-only concert that features, as guest artists, the esteemed resident organists of St. John Cantius Church performing on a historic instrument ideally suited to the repertoire. Highlights include Gargoyle-commissioned arrangements of Alexandre Guilmant's colorful, power-packed Symphony No. 1, Op. 42, and Maurce Ravel's popularPavane for a Dead Princess, which evokes dance music of Renaissance Spain.

“The Chicago Gargoyle Brass and Organ Ensemble plays with warmth, elegance, and panache,” says Fanfare magazine. “[They] are perfect companions for the music lover in need of calming nourishment.”
