Join us for masterclasses and recitals on the organ and choral music of JS Bach, Louis Vierne and their contemporaries.
This multi-day course is designed for organists and church musicians seeking to broaden their knowledge in aspects of performance practices of the music of the Baroque era and French Symphonic school.
Organ masterclasses and recitals will be given by renown artists Peter Sykes and Eric Plutz. Alicia Walker will lead choral sessions and Wayne Leupold will discuss his most recent publications. A closing worship service will be directed by Patrick Hawkins.
Performers and presenters will join participants in thoughtful discussions and powerful performances. Events will be held at four locations in Columbia, S.C., in order to perfectly match the repertoire to the distinct instruments. The festival is funded with assistance from the Arthur William Fisher Endowment.
