Atlanta Summer Organ Festival

June 16 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Internationally recognized as a conductor, organist, and teacher, James O’Donnell has performed all over the world.  Following a distinguished 23-year tenure as Organist and Master of the Choristers at Westminster Abbey, Mr. O’Donnell now holds the post of Professor in the Practice of Organ at Yale School of Music and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music in New Haven CT, where he succeeds Thomas Murray as professor to graduate organ majors and other students in sacred music. 

In his tenure at Westminster Abbey, Mr. O’Donnell was responsible for all musical aspects of the Abbey’s work, training and conducting the Abbey Choir in its daily choral services, recordings, concerts, and broadcasts and at the great national occasions for which the Abbey is known, including directing the music for the September 2022 State Funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The Atlanta Summer Organ Festival was established in 1995 to help increase classical music performances in the summer and PRUMC joined as a host in 2002.  To this day, the festival continues the tradition of offering a series of wonderful venues for both established and talented rising young organists.

A dessert reception will follow the program.

$15 suggested donation.
