Organ Recital Series - Dr. Robert Parkins
Dr. Robert Parkins, University Organist and a Professor of the Practice of Music at Duke, has performed throughout the United States and Europe, as well as in Central America. His organ and harpsichord recordings have appeared on the Calcante, Gothic, Musical Heritage Society, and Naxos labels. This season's program, presented on the Aeolian organ, will feature music by German Romantic and American composers. Included among the American works will be the first performance of Noel's Psalm (A Sonata for Organ), a newly commissioned piece by North Carolina composer Dan Locklair.
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.
