My former student, Joey Fala, will be playing an organ recital at the Washington National Cathedral this Sunday, February 26 at 5:15 pm. I took a screen shot of the web page, but if you would like to see it for yourself, click here.
This week we also received the postcards promoting Joey’s concerts in Hawaii, which will be on Sunday, March 12th at 3:00pm at Higashi Hongwanji Mission in Hilo and Sunday, March 19th at 7:00 pm at Central Union Church in Honolulu.
Here is the text of the back of the postcard:
Joey Fala is this year’s concert artist for the 12th Annual Organ Concert sponsored by the American Guild of Organists. This concert may be the most special concert of the entire series, because it is a celebration of one of our own Hawaii organ students, a 2010 graduate of Iolani School and student of Katherine Crosier, who went to the mainland for college, received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in architecture, won national acclaim as an organist, was awarded a full scholarship to the Yale Institute of Sacred Music in the Master of Music Organ Performance program and will “come home” to share his musical talent with us.
In works by Elgar, Shearing, Bach, Franck, Rheinberger, Howells, Escaich, and Dupré, the Hawaii audience will experience firsthand the talent of this amazing young musician whom The Diapason magazine named one of its “20 under 30” outstanding young organists to watch as they set the trend for organ performance for the future.
Thanks to Church Organs Hawaii which will provide the artist’s transportation to Hilo. Both concerts are free, but a calabash will be available. More information, 808-721-3468.
