William has been asked to play at a January concert on the new Schantz organ at a church in downtown Milwaukee. He’s working hard to be ready and is, of course, thrilled to have the honor of playing that magnificent instrument as a 15-year-old. Here’s Will playing the Toccata from Charles Marie Widor’s 5th Symphony.
This is the first time he played it on a pipe organ, so he informs me that he could do a better job. He got the music a few months ago, praticed the finger part on piano, practiced on his Allen organ at home, and then finally tried it out at his lesson on Saturday on a “real” organ at St. Joseph Chapel. This piece will clear any cobwebs out of your mind, especially at around 2:57 and also that last note!
