...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.

 

 With the arrival of autumn comes a change in life patterns - church and college activities get moving again, the kids are back in school, and I'm doing more traveling stateside.  Some highlights of the fall include: two performances of Messiaen's cycle Les Corps Glorieux (including one in Kalamazoo, with dance collaboration), my Canadian debut, as part of the fabulous ORGANIX 14 festival, a week spent mostly in central Pennsylvania, with two concers and two presentation to AGO chapters, the solo part in Lou Harrison's Concerto for Organ with Percussion Orchestra, and a musical birthday party I planned for myself - there was a sing along at the end, and we all crowded in the living room, played instruments, and sang "Yellow Submarine", "O My Darling Clementine", and "When the Saints go Marching In", among others. 

Hope you are making and enjoying lots of music where you are too.
