Plymouth welcomes organist Bruce Neswick for a guest recital noon, Friday, December 11, in the Sanctuary. Currently the Director of Music at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon, Neswick was Professor of Music in Organ and Sacred Music at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University and Director of Music at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City. He graduated from Pacific Lutheran University, Yale School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music.
Neswick has performed throughout United States and Europe and composed works for musicians and churches. His improvisational skills garnered him multiple awards including the 1990 American Guild of Organists’ national convention in Boston. The American Organist said, “Bruce Neswick has quite a reputation as an improviser, and it told in his playing which had an agreeable spontaneity and plenty of coloristic variety.”
Repertoire for the noon concert will include original works, pieces by Bach and Marcel Dupre and an improvisation on an Advent theme. Come and enjoy! –Janice RandallSubscribe
