Luther College to host Concert Organist Carole Terry Oct. 14

Carole Terry, guest concert organist, will present a concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 14, in the Main Hall of the Center for Faith and Life on the Luther Campus.

The concert is open to the public with no charge for admission.

Terry will perform Praeludium in E Major by Dietrich Buxtehude, two works by Bach, a Felix Mendelssohn sonata, "Deuxiéme Fantasie" by Jehan Alain, "Clair de Lune" by Jehan Alain and Introduction and Passacaglia to "Schönberger Orgelalbum" by Max Reger.

The concert is being presented as Luther's annual Benefactor Organ Recital, which features outstanding artists of international caliber performing on the Robert Sipe mechanical action organ. The intent of the concert, sponsored through the Kathryn Ulvilden Moen Organ Fund and the William B. Kuhlman Endowment for Organ Performance, is to provide a performance from an inspirational role model for current and prospective students who wish to pursue organ study at Luther.

Terry has recorded the complete organ works of Johannes Brahms and Brombaugh Organs of the Northwest for the Musical Heritage Society as well as the harpsichord works of William Albright, Henry Cowell, Vincent Persichetie and Ned Rorem and baroque chamber works on the Crystal Records label.
