Internationally renowned organist Christopher Houlihan will perform at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul located at 815 High Street in Des Moines on Saturday, April 14 at 7:30 pm. The concert, which kicks off the celebration for the 25th anniversary of the Cathedral and its treasured organ, is free and open to the public.
Houlihan’s program, sponsored by The Central Iowa American Guild of Organists and the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, will feature J.S. Bach’s Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor (from his most recent CD), and works by Schumann, Franck, and Howells.
Critics have applauded Christopher Houlihan for his “world class chops” and “marvelous ear”; The Los Angeles Times proclaimed him dazzling and seductive. Houlihan’s Disney Hall debut, performing with principal brass of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, resulted in The LA Times raving, “Houlihan is the next big organ talent.” Recent concert highlights include debuts at the Kennedy Center and Kimmel Center, and concertos with the Columbus (GA) Symphony and Chamber Orchestra of Boston. In 2017, Houlihan was appointed the John Rose College Organist-and-Directorship Distinguished Chair of Chapel Music at Trinity College in Hartford, his alma mater.
Christopher Houlihan lives in Brooklyn, NY, is Director of Music and Organist at The Church of the Holy Apostles in Manhattan and Artist-in-Residence at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.
