He has performed in major venues across the nation, from the Kennedy Center to Disney Hall, as well as in Europe and at the national conventions of the American Guild of Organists and the Organ Historical Society. He holds a Master’s degree from The Juilliard School where he studied with Paul Jacobs. Previous studies were with John Rose of Trinity College, Hartford. Last spring, he was named the John Rose College Organist-and- Directorship Distinguished Chair of Chapel Music at Trinity College. No tickets required.
