...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 again -  

We are now in the thick of winter here in West Michigan, which means snow on the ground, ice on the sidewalks, and clouds in the skies (though not as many as in North Germany, so stop whining folks!) I usually stick closer to home in winter, practicing lots, reading books, and baking too many tasty desserts.  I also enjoy opportunities for local music making with friends and colleagues.  

In a couple months, I'm looking forward to being in Lynwood, WA to play on the Pasi organ there, and later at Goshen College, to play their Taylor and Boody.  Also, rumors have been heard of a Japanese tour, to play fabulous instruments in that country, visit my brother Eric (stationed with the US Navy Band near Tokyo) and eat as much cheap and delicious sushi as possible!  Stay tuned for details...
