The Madison Symphony Orchestra (MSO) will host the first of three FREE summer organ concerts during the Dane County Farmers’ Market tomorrow, Saturday, June 18, at 11 a.m. in Overture Hall, 201 State Street. (Below is the organ keyboard in a photo by Zane Williams.)
No tickets or reservations are needed for this 45-minute concert featuring guest organist Adrian Binkley.
Adrian Binkley, a young organist from Madison, Wisconsin and a student of MSO Principal Organist Samuel Hutchison (below) recently won first place in the national Albert Schweitzer Organ Competition, being one of only three finalists chosen from high school organists across the United States.
The MSO and Overture Center for the Arts present the Farmers’ Market Concert Series in partnership with the Wisconsin State Journal/Madison.com. Support for all Overture Concert Organ programs is provided by the Diane Endres Ballweg Fund. With a gift from Pleasant T. Rowland, the Madison Symphony Orchestra commissioned the Overture Concert Organ (below), which is the stunning backdrop of all MSO concerts.
