Happy 2nd Birthday, Marble Pipe Organ! Two years ago this week was a grand occasion in the illustrious history of this Sanctuary: the dedication of Marble’s brand new 101-rank pipe Sebastian M. Glück organ. The memory of the opening hymn that Sunday morning – the first to be accompanied by a pipe organ in over five years – still brings tears to my eyes. It was as if the floor, the rafters, even the very pews themselves suddenly came alive with resounding praise. Since then we have hosted some of the world’s greatest organists in a highly-acclaimed Inaugural Concert Series. And now, for five Mondays we will be throwing our Fifth Avenue doors open at lunchtime to welcome tourists, neighbors, and passersby to revel in the grandeur and sheer beauty of this glorious instrument. Please join us and invite your friends and coworkers! — Ken Dake
