Ken Cowan, internationally acclaimed virtuoso, will be at First Church on Sunday, May 31st, to perform a concert at 3:00 p.m. in the sanctuary on the church’s new R. A. Colby pipe organ of 100 ranks! This is a thrilling program you and your friends will not want to miss, not only for the organ’s sonic and color possibilities, but also the console will be moved into the chancel for a full view of Ken Cowan’s dazzling musicianship and technique. Mark your calendars now.
The Diapason magazine states: “It is difficult to find enough adjectives to describe Ken Cowan’s playing. He is simply one of the best anywhere!” and The American Organist states: “Mr. Cowan’s technical mastery, expressivity, musicality, and sheer brilliance thrilled the convention audience.” This is a free program offered by First Church to the greater Austin community in celebration of the new instrument.
