On Sunday, May 21, as part of The New York Landmarks Conservancy’s Sacred Sites Open House, Marble Collegiate Church will host tours of its historic building dating back to 1854, complete with 12 stained glass windows, two of which are turn-of-the-century Dale Tiffany windows.

During this event, at 2 p.m., Kenneth Dake, Marble’s longtime Music Director, will present an Organ Fireworks Finale Concert in the historic Sanctuary at 29th Street and Fifth Avenue in New York City. Dake will perform on Marble’s pipe organ designed and voiced by Sebastian M. Glück. With its 6,500 pipes spread over seven divisions, Marble’s organ encircles the listener in a manner both heard and felt. Dake, who will retire after nearly three decades of service, will be giving his “finale” performance on the world-renown organ.

This is a free concert open to all. For more information, visit marblechurch.org.
