Titanic in Music and Story


Sunday April 15, 2018


Second Presbyterian Church
1936 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago

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 feature selected items from the last menu served to first class passengers.  Period attire welcome and a ship's wheel will be installed for photo opportunities.

Doors will open at 2:00pm and Friends docents will provide tours prior to the concert.

Co-sponsored by Glessner House Museum, Friends of Historic Second Church, and the Greater Chicago Chapter of the Victorian Society in America.
