Annual All Bach concert slated

Mar 06, 2014

Trinity Lutheran Church’s “Artists at the Organ” concert series continues with its annual All Bach Concert with Stanford University Organist, Robert Huw Morgan at the Pasi organ.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 23.

A native of Wales, Dr. Morgan is well known to Seattle area audiences for his time spent working on two doctorate degrees at the University of Washington, one in organ performance, the other in conducting.

Prior to that he received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Cambridge University and was a Fellow at the Royal College of Organists.

In addition to his duties as University Organist, he also holds the positions of Lecturer in Music, Director of the Stanford University Singers, and Director of the Stanford Memorial Church Choir.

During the academic year 2010-2011, he performed the complete organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach in a series of 14 concerts celebrating the 25th birthday of the Fisk organ in Stanford’s Memorial Church.

Trinity Lutheran Church’s organ, opus 4, is a two-manual, 30-stop mechanical action instrument, noted for its sound. It is housed in an Italianate style case of black walnut, in a fine acoustical environment.

Every part of the instrument was built by Martin Pasi, especially for this space, and was installed in 1995.

Suggested donation $15 for adults, seniors and students $10 or pay as able.
