James Kennerley, Portland Municipal Organist

Embark on an extraordinary journey with us as we officially launch our season with an out-of-this-world performance that promises to transport you to realms of cosmic wonder. Highlighting our program is a newly transcribed rendition of Holst The Planets, accompanied by the captivating Interstellar suite by Hans Zimmer, celebrating the re-release and 10-year milestone of this cinematic masterpiece. Additionally, we’ll feature John Williams’ iconic Star Wars march and Ludovico Einaudi’s Experience, newly transcribed for organ solo by James Kennerley. Enhancing this multisensory experience are video projections of outer space designed to enhance and interact with the music, creating a truly immersive atmosphere. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to embark on a musical journey through the cosmos and be swept away by the shared grandeur of the universe and Mighty Kotzschmar.
