...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's summertime 2020, and in the midst of a pandemic, there's lots of cancelled concerts in my life (like every other performing musician these days). 

However, I will be trying my hand at the livestream concert coming up in July and August, and I've been kept busy with the kids, as well as reading, picking fruits (so far we've hit strawberries and cherries - blueberries up next!), and learning new music just for fun.  

Books read so far this summer: Red Notice, The Glass Hotel, Lives Like Loaded Guns: Emily Dickinson and her Family's Feuds, Your Grandmother Said to Tell you She's Sorry, The Giver of Stars

Music Learned:  Te Deum (Diemessieux), Sonata 1 (Mendelssohn), Sounding Heaven and Earth (Cecilia McDowall)
