Don't miss this epic "battle of the basses," featuring a tuba concerto and double bass concerto on the same program. Not to be outdone, the organist surely will pull out the 32' bombarde stop! This concert will feature music for organ and brass choir, wind orchestra and string orchestra, and will combine both orchestras with organ on the Grainger works (as he intended!). Lively, lovely, powerful, playful...and plenty of deep bass!
