Organ Recital Series: Timothy Olsen
Kenan Professor of Organ at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, Dr. Timothy Olsen is also an Associate Professor of Organ at Salem College. The first-prize winner of the 2002 AGO National Young Artists Competition in Organ Performance, he has performed solo recitals at venues in twenty-eight states. Dr. Olsen has recorded for the Naxos and Raven labels, and one critic said of his most recent CD that "these are magisterial performances . . . so complete and uniformly impressive is his identification with the music" (Organ Australia). His program on the Flentrop organ, "Dancing through the Centuries," will include works by J. S. Bach, Guy Bovet, Calvin Hampton, and others.
