With a 3,000-pipe organ, centuries-old bells, an orchestra of pipe whistles and community-built music boxes, the sounds of In Plain Air will carry the audience through the campus and history of one of the nation’s most historic sites.

As Christ Church installed its C.B. Fisk pipe organ, it invited members of acclaimed artist collective International Contemporary Ensemble to inaugurate the new instrument with a program of original compositions. Composers Phyllis Chen and Nathan Davis have immersed themselves in the sound-making possibilities of the church’s organ, bells, and open spaces, as well as in the history and public role of Christ Church.

The resulting multi-movement program of performance art unites the historic bell tolls of “The Nation’s Church,” the majesty of the new pipe organ, and the Ensemble’s characteristic focus on place and community. 

In Plain Air is free and open to the public. Performances are offered on September 22 at 1:00, 3:30 and 6:00 p.m., and on September 23 at 3:30 and 6 p.m.
