Titanic in Music and Story

April 15, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT


Glessner House Museum, along with Friends of Historic Second Church and the Greater Chicago Chapter of the Victorian Society in America, will host a special program entitled “Titanic in Music and Story” on Sunday April 15, 2018 at 3:00pm at Second Presbyterian Church, located at 1936 S. Michigan Avenue in Chicago’s South Loop neighborhood.

Commemorating the 106th anniversary of the sinking of RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912, this program will feature John W. W. Sherer, organist and director of music at Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago. Sherer, who has been hailed by critics as “a terrific musician, a pronounced virtuoso who plays with assurance, authority and superb energy,” will perform music from 1912, music heard aboard Titanic, and music written to honor those lost, while telling riveting and heartbreaking stories behind the fateful voyage and the 1,500 victims. A reception following will featured selected dessert items from the last menu served to first class passengers. Period attire welcome and a ship’s wheel will be installed for photo opportunities. The church will open at 2:00pm for docent-led tours of the National Historic Landmark sanctuary prior to the concert.

Admission is $25 per person. Reservations may be made online at www.glessnerhouse.org.
