Notre Dame organist is in Germany, raising fundsmain
Olivier Latry, organist of Notre Dame de Paris, is performing tomorrow night in Dresden under the auspices of the Dresden Philharmonie.
Peter Conrad, Chairman of the Orchestral Board of the Dresden Philharmonic, said: ‘We musicians of the Dresden Philharmonic are deeply shaken by the destruction of large parts of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Hardly any other building in Europe so represents our western cultural tradition. Olivier Latry, who inaugurated our new concert hall organ in 2017, is known to us and to our audience as an exceptional, excellent performer. It is therefore important for us to donate the proceeds of tomorrow’s concert for the reconstruction of the cathedral, thus sending a sign of compassion and solidarity.’
