One New Orleans music man performs as professor, at church and on the synagogue
NEW ORLEANS – The sound of music.
It’s a the sound of a one-man symphony.
It’s from the person and the pipe organ he performs.
The pipe organs, that’s.
He performs fairly just a few of them.
He’s Marcus St. Julien.
WGNO’s Invoice Wooden desires you to listen to the music he makes.
And he makes it, properly, on a regular basis.
What seems like, on a regular basis.
Marcus St. Julien has been at some type of keyboard since he was a child.
He says, “I grew up at St. Dominic’s Church and had top-of-the-line organs and organists within the metropolis and the bug bit after I was a child and I grew to become intrigued with the organ.”
His orchestra as of late is the organ at Temple Sinai on St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans.
The organ was constructed again in 1926.
And virtually a century later, Marcus strikes up a chord to proclaim no one has ever modified one word on this mannequin of music historical past.
Marcus says, “fairly often, organists who’ve been at church with older devices change issues to accommodate tastes of the day, that has by no means occurred right here.”
Marcus has the pipes to proves he’s the organ maestro.
At Temple Sinai, two tales value of pipes.
Actually, two tales of tall pipes for this organ.
That’s when he performs right here on Fridays.
Sundays, it’s down the road, St. Charles Avenue, at a Methodist church.
That’s Rayne Memorial United Methodist Church.
The remainder of the time, he’s in his different sanctuary.
That’s a school classroom at Loyola College.
Marcus St. Julien is a music professor at Loyola.
His principle is while you get the possibility, you higher pull out all of the stops.
And that’s simply to ensure the music by no means stops.
