Benjamin Sheen Organ Concert

event information

Event Type: Music, Classic And Orchestral

The Department of UP Arts at the University of Pretoria and St Mary`s Anglican Cathedral in Johannesburg present a gala organ concert by Benjamin Sheen, Associate Organist at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue in New York City, in his first solo organ recital tour to South Africa. Hailed as `brilliant` by The New York Times, he is the 2013 winner of the Pierre S. du Pont First Prize at the inaugural Longwood Gardens Organ Competition and the Jon Laukvik Prize at the St. Alban`s International Organ Competition. Previous recital engagements this year have included performances across the United States as well as further afield in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. His is not a typical organ recital programme. Instead it will cover everything from Mozart to Gershwin, from Debussy to Liszt, and the giant cathedral organ will even be turned into a Wurlitzer for the Valse Mignon by Sigfrid Karg-Elert. There will also be a Rumba, contrasted with two typically English pieces by Whitlock and Parry which fit this particular organ like a glove. This will be an evening of superb music-making and entertainment by a rising star of the organ world.

Buses leave from the Linder Auditorium on the Wits Education Campus at 19.00 where free parking will be provided, taking concert goers to St Mary`s Cathedral in central Johannesburg. Patrons will return to their cars after the concert by approximately 21.30.
