The Worcester, Massachusetts, Chapter of the American Guild of Organists announces its Max Reger Festival, November 3–5, marking the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth.
The conference will examine Reger’s stylistic mannerisms in context of a time where atonality was emerging from Schoenberg, who was remarked that Reger represented “a new technique” of change looking forward. Featured recitalists are Carole Terry and Peter Sykes; presenters include Christopher Anderson and Terry.
The venues include Mechanics Hall, Wesley United Methodist Church, First Baptist Church, and All Saints’ Episcopal Church.
