France and America: “The Old World Meets the New” (Organ Recital of Zaccheus Lock)

Details:
Jul. 1, 3:00 pm
ABOUT THIS CONCERT

In this program, organist Zacchaeus Lock will explore some of the great works in the French and American traditions. While the music of France might at times be characterized by its tradition and restraint, some French composers have certainly eschewed such processes, opting instead for a courageous musical individualism similar to that found in the music of many American composers. Gospel tunes and Gregorian Chant will collide in an entertaining program of 19th and 20h century music, including works of Langlais, Bolcom, and Lefebure-Wely.

BIOGRAPHY

Zacchaeus Lock, winner of the 2017 AGO Pittsburgh Chapter Quimby Regional Competition for Young Organists, is music director and organist at St. Anthony's Church in Follansbee, West Virginia. Having completed his undergraduate study at Franciscan University of Steubenville with Nicholas Will and Dr. Jessica Ewell, studying both philosophy and sacred music, he has in past years played for numerous churches of all sorts and sizes in Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, and Connecticut, along with a memorable stint as organ scholar at Calvary Episcopal Church in Pittsburgh, working with Dr. Alan Lewis. As an alumnus of the St. Mary's Student Schola (directed by David Hughes and Charles Weaver) Zacchaeus sang for thousands at World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid as well as at events in New York City, Boston, and elsewhere; his experience working with professional ensembles under such diverse directorship as Scott Turkington, Chris Mueller, and Wilko Brouwers influences the hands-on choral work he does today.
