It’s a new year! It seems fitting to look back on all the performances I had the pleasure to give in the year 2016, including a full-length recital at Furman University, in my hometown of Greenville SC. I had the unique experience of collaborating with saxophones while playing Eastman’s Italian Baroque Organ. Together we formed a “funky Renaissance band” and played arrangements of Tielman Susato’s dances from the Dansereye. I had the opportunity to perform Poulenc’s Organ Concerto for the fifth time, this time with
Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra members at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Chestnut Hill in Philadelphia. Eastman colleagues Adam Detzner and Brian Glikes played concertos of C.P.E. Bach and Rheinberger.
Playing on the Frobenius Organ Recital Series in Saratoga Springs, NY, gave me the chance to collaborate with my dear friend, cellist Matt Zucker. We created a dance suite out of disparate organ pieces and movements from a Bach cello suite, and finished with a Tango by Piazzolla.
