Accomplished organist Biggers coming to DePauw Nov. 14-15

Saturday, November 12, 2011

The DePauw University School of Music will welcome guest artist Jonathan Biggers on Monday and Tuesday.

An acclaimed organist, Biggers will conduct a master class at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, with a recital the following evening at the same time.

Both events will take place in Kresge Auditorium of DePauw's Center for the Performing Arts and are free and open to the public.

Biggers' recital will include "BWV 564" by J. S. Bach; "Variations on a Theme" by Jannequin by Jehan Alain; "Tribute: A Lullaby for Organ and Fantasia on Sine Nomine" by Craig Phillips; "Suite du Deuxième Ton" by Jean-Adam Guilain, and "Fantasie und Fuge d-moll, Op. 135b" by Max Reger.

Hailed by American Public Media's Pipedreams as "one of the most outstanding concert organists in the U.S.," Biggers maintains an active career as both a professor of organ and harpsichord, and as a concert organist.

He is the Edwin Link Endowed Professorship in Organ and Harpsichord at Binghamton University (New York), and has presented hundreds of concerts in church and university settings throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.

Biggers has appeared as a soloist with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, and has been featured on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), and on radio and TV broadcasts in Switzerland.
