Nantucket Bank Presents: The 30th Annual NCMC Organ Crawl

Following the resounding success of last year’s YouTube and NCTV Channel 18’s broadcasts, the 2021 program promises to engage viewers with light, summer seasonal popular and classic music performed by five organists, on pipe organs located in five of Nantucket’s historic churches.

In addition to Christopher J. Pharo, NCMC’s first Organ Performance Scholar, the 2021 Organ Crawl will include the island’s three resident organists, Joe Hammer, Isaiah Williams, and Jeffrey Cutts, as well as guest organist Carson Cooman, an internationally renowned organ composer and performer based in Boston. This year’s Organ Crawl is graciously sponsored by Nantucket Bank.

Elizabeth let me play the Red Violin after her performance! The sound was warm and it played with ease. I tried to focus on the instrument but I got completely discombobulated when I realized she had walked away leaving me with the violin. So I just kept playing! Where else in the world could that have happened? Thanks NCMC.
