Three new performances have been added recently, all of which I’m very excited about. They include fantastic instruments, different repertoire, and great cities. In July, I’ll give my first convention performance on a beautiful organ in the Pennsylvania countryside. This program includes some lesser-known gems, and is a chance for my repertoire to expand in different directions. Also of special note is a September performance at the Mormon Tabernacle. This is one of the finest organs I’ve played, in an acoustic that is unparalleled – they still do a “pin drop” demonstration at each concert. I hope you’ll join me for these events!
