University organist at Princeton University, Eric Plutz is a concert organist soloist of critical and popular acclaim. He has recorded four solo CDs and can be heard as accompanist on many others.

Plutz, who “performs with gusto, flair, clarity, and strong yet pliant rhythmic control (James Hildreth, for The American Organist),” has accepted engagements in distinguished locations across the United States and abroad including Germany, Austria, Philadelphia (Verizon Hall, the Wanamaker Organ, Longwood Gardens), New York City (Avery Fisher Hall, Church of St. Ignatius Loyola, Cathedral of St. John the Divine), Washington, D.C. (Washington National Cathedral), and San Francisco (Grace Cathedral).

He has been a featured artist at three Regional Conventions of the American Guild of Organists (2007, 2011, 2019), the Annual Convention of the Organ Historical Society (2016), and at the 2010 National AGO Convention in Washington, D.C., Plutz performed twice, in collaboration with two local groups.  His playing has been broadcast on “With Heart and Voice,” “Pipedreams,” and “the Wanamaker Organ Hour.”

Originally from Rock Island, Illinois, Plutz earned a Bachelor of Music degree, magna cum laude, from Westminster Choir College and a Master of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music. Additional study consists of two visits to Europe: in 2005, he studied the complete organ works of César Franck with Marie-Louise Langlais in Paris, and in 2019 he studied the complete organ symphonies of Louis Vierne with Ben van Oosten in The Hague, Netherlands.
