...is a concert organist, church musician, chamber musician, (sometimes carillonneur), and currently a fanatical fan of antique Northern German organs.

 

Welcome to my website!

Whether it is information about me and my concerts, or photos and recordings of some of the organs I know and love, I hope you'll enjoy the time you spend here.

 

I'm seen here in front of the beautiful 16th century case of the organ built in 1962 by Ahrend and Brunzema for St. Martini Church in Bremen, Germany. This amazing instrument, where I practiced regularly for many of my years in Germany, has three manuals and 33 stops, mechanical action, and is tuned in Bach Kellner temperament.

 

 

Happy summer! - I'm looking forward to some fun events coming up in the next months - the national convention of the AGO in Boston, a trip to Germany in July to visit some old friends (both the people kind, and the organ kind), time relaxing with my family, lots of bike riding, fresh veggies from our CSA, and hanging out at Lake Michigan with my kids.  Fall is bringing a project that I've been thinking about for some time now, and am excited it's coming to fruition - a performance of Messiaen's complete Les Corps Glorieux, with a dance collaboration - as well as a few performances of my popular "It don't mean a thing..." program, using the theme of jazz in organ music to present a wide variety of repertoire, from the German Baroque, to France at the turn of the 20th century, and modern-day America.
