Memorial Concert in Memory of Jared Jacobsen
Climate Change: Prioritizing our Global and Local Response • 28-Jun-2020
Originally broadcast at 8 p.m. EDT Sunday, June 28, 2020.
The Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson and interim organist Joshua Stafford remember Jared Jacobsen.
Jacobsen, Chautauqua’s longtime organist and coordinator of worship and sacred music, died in a car crash in 2019, shortly after completing his 65th summer at Chautauqua. Jacobsen served as the operator and guardian of the Massey Memorial Organ located in the Amphitheater and the Tallman Tracker mechanical-action organ in the Hall of Christ, in addition to leading the Chautauqua and Motet Choirs.
Robinson and Stafford present a memorial concert for Jacobsen for the first Sacred Song Service of the 2020 season.
