The Harriman Institute is pleased to present the final event in a series of three concerts by internationally acclaimed organist and recording artist Gail Archer. Part of the series A Slavic Celebration: Trio of Gail Archer Concerts, her performance of the Russian Program on April 10 will be held at St. John Nepomucene. Known for enthralling listeners with her musicality, sensitivity, and visceral quality, Gail Archer introduces audiences to rarely performed works by 19th-21st century Slavic composers. This unique program showcases the little-known organ literature of Eastern Europe.
