...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.

 

Hello readers -  It is again winter in West Michigan, and as I write this in January, I'm not sure how I feel about that... (grey skies, slush, bitter cold)

But winter is a great time for practicing, reading, and long walks in the woods, so that's what I've been doing.  I'm getting ready for some concerts coming up, from a fun one at Hope College, with Tony Monaco on the Hammond B3, a tour of Germany in March, as well as concerts on the amazing Baroque organ at Cornell University, and the Taylor and Boody in Staunton, Virginia.  Looking further ahead, the upcoming summer includes three organ conventions!  (we sit on buses, as we drive from church to church, and talk about among other things, pipe organs)
