What is it?

From Sea to Shining Sea is an organ and media event featuring the music, anecdotes, and images of the first 200 years of the organ in the Colonies and the United States. Dr. Jordan's intensive research into the lives of early American organists, organs and organ music led her to create this program in conjunction with media artist, David Jordan.  Mr. Jordan's images invite the listener to experience a visual connection with the music and stories of Dr. Jordan's program. From Sea to Shining Sea takes the listener on a narrated musical and visual historical journey.Complete with fascinating anecdotes, and eye-catching visuals, the program captivates audiences.

The program begins with a quoted diary entry from 1703 describing the "playing of a voluntary on the organ in the gallery, by Jones, the organist." Discovered in a diary belonging to a member of the Mystics of Wissahickon who worshiped in the city of Philadelphia, colony of Pennsylvania, it is the first documented evidence in America of an organist, an organ, and organ music.

The program continues by giving a persona to the organists, visuals of places, and life to the history of American organ music.
We use Live Camera Feeds projected on a cinematic screen. Each person in the audience can experience the thrill of watching the organist's feet and hands as the music is performed.

Stories of duels fought by organists and positions thus being declared vacant, travel by oxcart to deliver organs to cities in the wilderness, Native Americans being entranced by the sounds of "singing children in a box," and young women organists being the musical stars of their world, serve to create vivid pictures of the organists of the era. Images help place the listener in cities, churches, and homes, and the music played brings the listener closer to the artistic life of the colonies and fledgling United States.
