calendar icon10 Sep 2018
LINCOLN, Neb.— The Christopher Marks organ performance on Sunday, September 23 at 4 p.m. at First-Plymouth Church (2000 D Street) presents two major organ symphonies by American composers—the second symphony of Edward Shippen Barnes (1887-1958) and the landmark Symphony in G by Leo Sowerby (1895-1968).
The Schoenstein organ at First-Plymouth Congregational Church is ideally suited to this music, offering the enormous range of color and dynamics needed to deliver these orchestrally conceived works.
Marks is a leading scholar and performer in American organ works of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Marks is a Professor in the Glenn Korff School of Music at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he also serves as Associate Dean of the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and Interim Director of the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film.
