Lunch At Carrie Nation (12:30 PM)
Organ Demonstration (2 PM)
King’s Chapel music director Heinrich Christensen will present "What is an organ?" On our private tour, you will be invited up the stairs to the organ loft to get up-close and personal with the instrument to get a sense of what is lurking inside. This is your chance to find out where all those strange sounds are coming from and how they are made. Disclaimer: This is not a concert or musical presentation as such, but much more about the mechanics and the general art of organ building, a spectacular craft in its own right. The presentation will run approximately 60 minutes, with plenty of time for Q & A as we go along, so do come armed with all your burning questions! Optional lunch beforehand at Carrie Nation, 11 Beacon Street (pay individually). Organ demonstration only, meet at King’s Chapel, 58 Tremont St. at 2:00 p.m. King’s Chapel is a two-minute walk from Carrie Nation. BHV members only. Free.
