Every Wednesday, from 1:15 to 1:45 the organist at the Cathedral performs a half hour organ recital. This happens all year long. Barring a death in the family, this weekly recital is the probably one of the most reliable sublime half hours one can fit into their week. The organ recital is free, although donations for the organ fund are appreciated.
Each week the Cathedral Organist David Drinkell presents a fresh progam for the weekly Organ Concert, complete with program notes. The experience is a rarity of the modern western world. A highly trained and focused professional musician (David Drinkell) retained by the owners (i.e. the Anglican Church) of a splendid building (i.e. the Anglican Cathedral in St. John's, Newfoundland) to hone and sustain his skills through the presentation of a public recital of great works for the pipe organ each and every Wednesday with everyone welcome. This is a privilege and pleasure not to be missed by residents and visitors to St. John's, Newfoundland.
This is an analog experience par excellence - great repertoire played on a real life pipe organ in a multidimensional space by a dedicated player.
