‘Music at St. Michael’s this May’

Bro. Stephen Rumpf, the Right Worshipful Grand Organist of the Grand Lodge of the State of New York will celebrate his 70th birthday later this spring with an organ recital in New York City. From the publicity:

Organ Recital
St. Michael’s Episcopal Church
225 West 99th Street
(at Amsterdam Avenue)
New York City
Friday, May 19 at 7:30 p.m.
Open to all
Suggested donation: $20

Acoustically and aesthetically, St. Michael’s truly is one of New York’s premier performance spaces. The church houses two fine tracker-action pipe organs built in 1967 by the Rudolf von Beckerath Organ Company of Hamburg, Germany, and a newly restored 1938 Steinway Model B Grand. Together with the superb acoustics of the church building and the great stained glass and mosaic masterworks by Louis C. Tiffany, St. Michael’s is an extraordinary space for worship and music.

RW Rumpf is a Past Master of both Kane 454 and Joseph Warren-Gothic 934 in Manhattan, and he is well known for his musical genius far beyond the Masonic world also.
