Missouri Symphony Society, Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony preview by Jill Renae Hicks
The historic Morton pipe organ at the Missouri Theatre Center for the Arts has been left largely untouched for years now, a remnant of the silent-movie era. But this week promises a reawakening of the majestic instrument; it will arouse from its slumber to become a crucial component of the next Hot Summer Nights concert taking place inside the theater: Camille Saint-Saëns' Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78, also known as the "Organ" Symphony.
