…young performers share their gifts at the 2016 National Convention of the American Guild of Organists in Houston, TX.
The majority of these performances were recorded during the final round of the 2016 AGO National Young Artist Competition in Organ Performance(r. 6/18/16) at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church (1981 Schantz), though Thomas Dahl (winner of the National Competition in Organ Improvisation) played (r. 6/21/16) at Christ Church Cathedral (1938 Aeolian-Skinner).
As part of her AGO NYACOP prize, Ms. Emerson has recorded a compact disc (“Evocations”) on the 1936 Aeolian-Skinner organ at Church of the Advent (Pro Organo 7277).
A series of Regional AGO Conventions are taking place across the USA this month and early July.
