French Connections: Music of Guilmant, Ravel, and Widor
The CHICAGO GARGOYLE BRASS AND ORGAN ENSEMBLE, which has been on a tear commissioning new compositions and arrangements for their unusual instrumentation, will give the Chicago premiere of an organ and brass arrangement of late-Romantic French composer Felix Guilmants Symphony No. 1, Op. 42, for organ and orchestra. Arranger is New England-based composer Craig Garner.

The program,"French Connections: Music of Guilmant, Ravel, and Widor," includes Garners organ and brass arrangement of Maurice Ravels impressionistic  Pavane for a Dead Princess; Charles-Marie Widors Salvum fac populum tuum (Save our people), Op. 84, for brass, drum, and organ; and French Baroque composer-organist Louis Marchand's "Grand Dialogue in C" for solo organ.

Concertgoers will also hear Carlyle Sharpes Prelude, Elegy, and Scherzo, a Chicago Gargoyle commission that received its world-premiere recording on the Gargoyle's critically acclaimed debut CD, Flourishes, Tales and Symphonies, released in December on the MSR Classics label.

The program's final piece will be Michael Burkhardts organ and brass arrangement of the hymn You Call Us, Lord, to Be, based on a Welsh folk tune.

Ensemble artists will include trumpet players Lev Garbar and Andrew Hunter, horn player Renée Vogen, trombonist Ian Fitzwater, tuba player Phil Bessette, and percussionists Joe Beribak and Michael Schraft. Organist will be Phillip Kloeckner, a lecturer in music at the University of Chicago and associate university organist at Rockefeller Chapel.
