...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 has three manuals and 33 stops, mechanical action, and is tuned in Bach Kellner temperament.
After living for seven years in Bremen, Germany (in the north west corner of the country, near Hamburg), my husband, children, and I moved back to the states in 2011. My time in Bremen had an irrevocable influence on me musically and personally, and the adjustment back has not always been easy. However, we're settling in now finally. We bought a house in the historic district of Holland, Michigan, and I have some exciting things going on musically as well: I am organist at Hope Church in Holland (Reformed Church of America) as well as a staff accompanist at Hope College. I also have been enjoying the opportunity to perform quite a bit recently, something that I find very inspiring and motivating. Check out my concerts page for where I'll be playing next.
I recently added an occasional blog of sorts, "Musings", and also updated my Favorite Organs section, to include many more US instruments.
They like organ music too...
