Known for centuries as "The King of Musical Instruments", the pipe organ has been responsible for some of the most sublime, introspective, and thrilling music ever created. Join The Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, Sykes Chapel Organist Ryan Hebert, and conductor Brett Karlin for an afternoon of music that explores the grand cathedral traditions of England and France. Featuring Fauré’s subtle and poignant Requiem Mass, along with exhilarating music for the coronation of British monarchs, this concert is a "pipe dream" not to be missed.
