Organ Recital - Caroline Robinson
Third Church Assistant Organist Caroline Robinson has recently been chosen as one of sixteen young organists from around the world to compete at the 29th St. Albans International Organ Festival in St. Albans, England, in July 2017. Caroline holds the distinction of being the only American chosen to participate among the field of sixteen competitors this year.
This recital will include a sampling of music from each round of the competition, including works of Johann Sebastian Bach, Olivier Messiaen's ethereal Alleluias sereins d'une âme qui désire le ciel, and the dramatic Allegro from Charles-Marie Widor’s Sixth Symphony for organ, among other works.
Caroline has served as Assistant Organist at Third Presbyterian Church since 2014, working alongside Peter DuBois. Her organ studies have been at the Curtis Institute; the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Règional de Toulouse; and the Eastman School of Music, where she is currently pursuing doctoral studies.
The program is free and open to all. Those who are able to attend will also have an opportunity to help support Caroline’s competition expenses. Plan to attend, as we give Caroline an enthusiastic send-off!
