BEDIENT ORGANS Re-Dedication Concert
Marie Rubis Bauer, Organist

Two organs that have served Saint Cecilia Cathedral for more than two
decades each, find new homes in the Cathedral.  In the month of June,
the two organs “switched places” with the help of former Omaha
resident, Mark Pichowicz.  The move allows both of these beautiful
musical instruments to reside in acoustics that support their voices
better.  The one-hour program will start in the Our Lady of Nebraska
Chapel, where pieces will be played to show the sounds of the smaller
“Boston” instrument, and will include an up-close look at the
instrument in the loft.  Then the second half will be in the nave,
where the larger “Houston” instrument is now installed, followed by a
tour of the instrument.  All are invited to hear these beautiful
instruments sing!

All concerts will be held at:

Saint Cecilia Cathedral
