Take a Soul Break at Marble Church With Organ Music Performed by Amelie Held

March 13, 12:30 pm1 pm.

Take a Soul Break with organ music performed by Amelie Held at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, March 13 in the historic Marble Collegiate Church Sanctuary, 1 W. 29th Street at Fifth Avenue.

Held is currently a student at The Julliard School and is known for her red organ shoes. The internationally acclaimed artist recently made her debut at some of Germany’s major cathedrals and concert halls and has performed in many of the world’s most important music centers in Milan, Paris, Zurich, London, Boston, New York and St. Petersburg.

Marble Church’s world-famous pipe organ, designed and voiced by Sebastian M. Glück, encircles the listener in a manner both heard and felt. Marble’s organ has nearly 6,500 pipes spread over seven divisions – including three that are enclosed. An elegantly-crafted and technologically advanced four-manual console sits in the East choir gallery and commands 101 ranks of pipes.

The organ’s orchestral effects and daring musical gestures were designed to perform great concert literature, lead dynamic public worship and provide refined accompaniment to Marble’s esteemed choirs under the direction of Kenneth Dake.

The 30-minute Soul Break is free and continues on Mondays through April 3. For more information visit MarbleChurch.org.
