Inaugural Recital 9/14 featuring Ken Cowan
St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church announces a new organ recital series, the Moseley Memorial Organ Recitals.
On the second Sunday of each month from September through May, except in December, Choral Evensong at 4:00 pm will be followed by a recital on St. Thomas’ Schoenstein pipe organ.
The inaugural Moseley Memorial Organ Recital will feature Ken Cowan at 5:30 p.m. on September 14.
Ken Cowan is one of North America’s finest concert organists. Praised for his dazzling artistry, impeccable technique and imaginative programming by audiences and critics alike, he maintains a rigorous performing schedule which takes him to major concert venues in America, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
A native of Thorold, Ontario, Canada, Mr. Cowan received the Master’s degree and Artist Diploma from the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, studying organ with Thomas Murray. Prior to attending Yale, he graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree from the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia where he studied with John Weaver.
In 2012 Mr. Cowan joined the keyboard faculty of the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University as Associate Professor and head of the organ program. Previous positions have included Associate Professor of Organ at Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, NJ, where he was awarded the 2008 Rider University Distinguished Teaching Award, and Associate Organist and Artist in Residence at Saint Bartholomew’s Church in New York.
We hope you will join us as we launch the Moseley Memorial Organ Recitals on September 14. Then join us on each subsequent second Sunday at 4:00 for Choral Evensong, followed by a reception of tea and scones, and an organ recital from 5:30–6:15 pm.
Free admission; donations accepted.
