Jelani Eddington & Chris Gorsuch Make History At Dickinson High School
WILMINGTON, DELAWARE. On March 12, 2011 at the famed Kimball organ at Dickinson High School, Jelani Eddington and Chris Gorsuch performed the first-ever organ duo program ever held at the venue in its nearly 40-year history.
This special dual console program was possible in part due to the recent addition of a new console to control the 66 ranks of Kimball pipework found in the instrument. The older console sat opposite the new console, allowing both artists to play simultaneously in an exciting two-hour duo concert.
The two artists created specially-crafted organ duo arrangements for the event, including Oklahoma, Glenn Miller Medley, John Williams Medley, Slaughter On Tenth Avenue, Venus (from the Planets), and Victory At Sea.
In addition to the organ duo arrangements, the artists played a couple of piano-organ duets and several solo numbers.
An enthusiastic audience of over 800 helped to make the event a real treat!
