Organ Recital Series

Christopher Jacobson, FRCO, Chapel Organist and Divinity School Organist at Duke, has won prizes in several organ competitions. He has presented organ recitals throughout North America, Europe, and Australia, and records for the Dutch label Pentatone. One reviewer noted that "demonstrating excellent technique and mature interpretation, Christopher Jacobson presented one of the strongest recitals of the convention" (The American Organist). His recital this year, performed on the Aeolian organ, will include music by Marcel Dupré and Petr Eben, as well as works based on seasonal carols.
A staple of the Chapel Music calendar, the Organ Recital Series showcases internationally acclaimed organists performing beloved favorites, modern masterpieces, and original improvisations. The Chapel's Aeolian, Flentrop, and Brombaugh organs are all featured in this series.
