Cleveland Institute of Music students to present organ concert
On Saturday, April 5 at 4:00 p.m. an organ concert will be held in Morley Music Building on the campus of Lake Erie College.
The concert will feature five undergraduate and graduate organ students from The Cleveland Institute of Music, who will perform a diversity of exemplary works on the E. M. Skinner organ. The concert will include works by Johann Sebastian Bach, César Franck, Charles-Marie Widor, Louis Vierne, Marcel Dupré, and Leo Sowerby.
Student organists Emily Meixner, David von Behren, Garrett Law, Daniel Parks and David Jaronowski have, among them, won national competitions, performed in American Guild of Organists recitals around the country, performed on other great organs in the U.S., and held organist/music director positions with large churches.
Todd Wilson, head of the Organ Department at The Cleveland Institute of Music, will also be performing on the concert. Wilson is also the curator of the E.M. Skinner pipe organ at Severance Hall in Cleveland, director of music and worship at Cleveland's Trinity Cathedral, and house organist for the newly restored Aeolian organ at the Stan Hywet Home and Gardens in Akron. He is respected internationally for his outstanding performances.
The concert is free and open to the public. No reservations are required.
