Rescheduled from my COVID-defined 2020-21 season, I'm pleased to finally be able to perform this recital, sponsored by the South Dakota chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Visit http://www.sdago.org/events.html for more information about their program year, and plan to join me on April 22-23!
As the pandemic has taught us, to take a breath is something to cherish. I've designed a program intended to give you a breath of in-spiration, beginning with the genius of Bach.
