Organ Recital: Kent Tritle
Time: Sunday, October 22 at 3:00 pm

The N.P. Mander organ—at 5,000 pipes, 30 tons and 45 feet high—is the largest tracker-action pipe organ in the New York metropolitan area. This massive, kingly instrument bellows beneath the massive vaults at St. Ignatius Loyola. All N.P. Mander Organ Recitals feature large-screen projection, offering the audience a rare view of the organist at work.
