Mighty Pipes at First Congregational Church

Wow, if this is what it looked like, just imagine what it sounded like!

The Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles has produced another musical spectacular, this time combining their vocal Mighty Pipes with the world's largest church pipe organ at the First Congregational Church.

I've already shared the goosebumpy-experience just from the organ, now add 200 or so voices harmonizing with that sound. Holy cow!! And the serious - and cheeky - songs that GMCLA is know for: "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "His Eye Is on the Sparrow," two toccatas and a George Michael medley. Fantastic!

Here you see John West pulling out all the stops on one end of the sanctuary with the chorus at the other end. Literally, every inch of the space was filled with beautiful music!

GMCLA does a couple of shows throughout the year, and First Congregational has regular organ performances. Go hear both sets of Mighty Pipes when you can!
