What we’ll do

Come and join me for a detailed and private organ performance at the Basilica where I am the titular organist. I'll bring you up close and personal with the instrument, explain the history and how it all works. During our time together, we'll also dive deep into the art and architecture of the Basilica, as we have one of Bernini's most treasured sculptures, the Ludovica Albertoni.

What else you should know

Please note that shoulders and knees must be covered before entering the church. I have a nice selection of scarves in case you forget! Photos and videos are absolutely welcomed, and my groups are exempt from the posted signs around the church, so don't worry about that!

What to bring

A love for music, art history and architecture

Where you'll be

We'll meet at the Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in the Trastevere district of Rome, and go right up to the console of the organ, then start the history, art and architecture tour by visiting the pipes behind the main altar.
