Walter Klauss, organist and director of music at All Souls Unitarian Church in Manhattan, will give a recital on the historic 1845 Erben organ, the oldest organ in a church on Long Island. At the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Mr. Klauss was one of six organists invited to perform the complete organ works of Olivier Messiaen in a concert honoring the composer, who was present. He continues to appear as a recitalist, and, for his 30th anniversary concert at All Souls, performed Rheinberger's rarely heard Concerto No. 2 for Organ and Orchestra. A reception to meet the artist will follow the recital. Proceeds benefit the Community House at Old Whalers'.
