‘Artists at the Organ’ season finale slated
Trinity Lutheran Church’s “Artists at the Organ” concert series presents the final concert of its 18th season on Sunday, May 5, at 5 p.m., with the return of one of its most popular artists, Douglas Cleveland.
Born and raised in Olympia, Washington, Dr. Cleveland gained international prominence when he won first prize in the 1994 American Guild of Organists National Young Artists Competition in Dallas.
Since then, he has performed in 49 of the United States and has been invited to perform in such venues as Westminster Abbey, The Berlin Cathedral, Stockholm Cathedral, Moscow Conservatory, Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Melbourne, Minato Mirai Concert Hall in Yokohama, Japan, the Victoria Concert Hall in Singapore, and the Cathedral of Lausanne, Switzerland.
He currently serves on the organ faculty at the University Of Washington School Of Music, and is also the director of music at Plymouth Church in Seattle.
His program will include the music of J. S. Bach, Bruhns, Mozart, David Dahl and others.
Trinity Lutheran Church’s organ, opus 4, is a stunning 2 manual, 30 stop mechanical action instrument particularly noted for its glorious 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.
