About the Event

On June 2nd, 1937, French organist and composer Louis Vierne died on the organ bench while playing a concert at the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris. His funeral was on June 5th. This year on June 5th, organist Raymond Hawkins will tempt fate by playing a program that features the works of Louis Vierne and his contemporaries, including the very last piece of music Vierne ever played. Due to COVID-19 gathering restrictions, there will be no audience present, but the concert will be livestreamed online at the following link:
