“Pullin’ Out the Stops,” the third concert in the Summer Music Festival’s 25th season, features organist Nicholas Bergin.
He will explain the workings of his chosen instrument, which has more working parts than a BMW.
The performance takes place at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 19, at the Church of the Good Shepherd, 715 Kirkman St.
The festival will offer Tuesday-night shows through June. Tickets are $10 per concert and may be purchased at the door. Children under 12 are admitted free.
A reception to meet the artists will follow each performance.
Bergin, a recent graduate and recipient of Indiana University’s prestigious Barbara and David Jacobs Fellowship, will play two north German Baroque masterpieces — J. S. Bach’s “Fantasia” and “Fugue in C Minor” and Nicholas Bruhns’ “Praeludium in G Major,” as well as the dramatic “Introduction and Passacaglia” by the 19th-century German composer Joseph Rheinberger.
His program also features works by French virtuoso performer-composers, including Charles Tournemire’s Choral-Improvisation sur le “Victimae paschali,” based on an Easter plainchant, and the ethereal “Chant de Paix” of Jean Langlais.
