Eccles Organ Festival

The 21st Annual Eccles Organ Festival presents

Ghislain Leroy and Romain Leleu

The 21st Season of the Eccles Organ Festival continues Sunday November 9, 2014 at 8:00 pm at The Cathedral of the Madeleine with a recital by the French duo Ghislain Leroy (organ) and Romain Leleu (trumpet).

Hailing from Northern France, and educated in the National Conservatoires Supérieurs de Musique in Paris and Lyon, Ghislain Leroy and Romain Leleu revisit since 2006 the emblematic duo Trumpet and Organ. Artists with a rare musical empathy, with a strong commitment to share the passion for their instruments, they propose in their recitals a large panorama from all epochs and styles.

All performances of the Eccles Organ Festival are open to the public and free of charge.

Preparing the Way: Keeping a Holy Advent 
The Cathedral of the Madeleine

331 East South Temple Street

Salt Lake City (801) 328-8941

Welcome to the Cathedral of the Madeleine, the mother church for Roman Catholics in the State of Utah. Advent is a season of expectation, preparation, and hope during which we anticipate the coming of Christ. It is a season for which we ponder the ultimate things in life, setting aside the mundane. It is a season of Prophets: Isaiah, Zechariah, John the Baptist, and others. Indeed, Isaiah challenges us with this word from the Lord: “I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.” Please consider joining us for any of the opportunities listed in the information found below. We wish you all a very blessed Advent season.
