Trnava hosts organists

AMERICAN organ player James David Christie from Boston opened the Trnava Organ Days with his concert on August 17. Now in its ninth year, the festival will run until October 1.

Such is the case with the second chamber concert of the event, to be delivered by a Slovak trio comprised of a cembalist, flutist, and cellist, scheduled for August 22.
