The Collect Call: The Episcopal Megachurch Organist

Michael Boney, Director of Music for Christ Church Cathedral, Indianapolis, at the organ for the prelude on the last day of General Convention 2015.

A temporary megachurch forms during each General Convention of the Episcopal Church. Organist Michael Boney explains how he has to adapt his style to keep 5,000 Episcopalians on the same hymn tune, and what it’s like to collaborate with a jazz ensemble on one the classics of the pipe organ.
