Salvatore Pronesti, an international performing organist, will present a concert at First Presbyterian Church of Franklin. Pronesti, in addition to playing the organ, is also a master organ builder, and teaches construction methods of organ building. Pronesti comes from Rome, Italy, where he is organist at the Pantheon. Pronesti tours Europe, and participates in important national and international festivals. His performance will include pieces by Bach, Italian composers and improvisations.
First Presbyterian Church has one of the best pipe organs in the state. It was built by Steere, a famous New England organ builder, in the early 1900s, and was completely rebuilt by Goulding & Wood in the 1980s. The concert is free to the public and is partially supported by a generous grant from the Branigin Foundation.
