PITT-BRADFORD TO OFFER ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS ORGAN RECITAL

Dr. Ann Labounsky.
BRADFORD, Pa. – Dr. Ann Labounsky will play a recital of Advent and Christmas Music on the Sarah B. Dorn Organ in the Harriett B. Wick Chapel at noon on Dec. 9.

The recital is free and open to the public.

Selections will include pieces by Bach, Franck, Brahms, and others, as well as two French carols and improvisations on well-known music for the holiday season.

Labounsky is widely known, both in the United States and in Europe, as a virtuoso performer and improviser at the organ, and particularly as a leading American disciple of Jean Langlais.

From 1962 to 1964 she lived and studied in Paris as a Fulbright scholar. There, as an organ student of André Marchal and Jean Langlais, she immersed herself in the French organ tradition, studying many of Langlais’s organ compositions with the composer, and playing them for him on the organ at Sainte-Clotilde.

Her undergraduate and graduate degrees in organ were earned at the Eastman School of Music and the University of Michigan. She also holds a doctorate in musicology from the University of Pittsburgh.

Labounsky serves as professor of music and chairman of the Organ and Sacred Music degree programs at Duquesne University, where she oversees undergraduate and graduate programs in sacred music. She also holds the position of Organ Artist in Residence at the First Lutheran Church, Pittsburgh.

She and her husband, Lewis Steele, live in Pittsburgh.

The Dorn Organ was constructed by the Schantz Organ Company in Orrville, Ohio. It consists of 17 ranks with 1,020 pipes and was custom-built for the Wick Chapel.
