dirosa-adjThe Cathedral of St. Joseph’s Sacred Sounds Concert Series continued on Nov. 15 with a recital by organist and composer Giampaolo Di Rosa. 

Pushing classical music beyond its boundaries through the art of improvisation, Mr. Di Rosa shook the walls of the cathedral in Hartford with his arrangement of Franz Liszt’s “Fantasy and Fugue on Bach.”

The recital was dedicated to the in memory of the late Vera W. Lavery, a resident of Windsor who died earlier this year, who was an enthusiastic supporter of the cathedral’s music ministry. (Photo by Bob Mullen/The Catholic Photographer)
