Celebrate the New Year with Heroic Music for Brass & Organ, presented as part of Waterbury Symphony Orchestra’s Music in Great Spaces series. The tantalizing combination of brass and organ presented in a cathedral acoustic is one that cannot be replicated. Be prepared to relish in sonorous mastery, led by Music Director and Conductor Leif Bjaland at two spectacular locations, each unique in their own way.
Stephen Scarlato, guest organist, received his bachelor’s degree in organ performance from The Hartt School, where he studied under Larry Allen. He currently serves as organist at Immanuel Congregational Church, and as a staff accompanist in The Hartt School’s Vocal Studies Division.
