Known for her technical facility and musicianship, Emerson garners acclaim from new listeners of classical music to audiences of colleagues and organ aficionados alike. She is a prizewinner of competitions on three continents and has performed more than 110 solo and collaborative concerts throughout the U.S. and Europe since her first prize win at the 2016 American Guild of Organists’ (AGO) National Young Artists’ competition.

Notes from the Director of Programming
Katelyn Emerson is a young and ascendant female organist who was recommended by the Northrop Organ Committee for her technical facility, promising career trajectory, and newness to Twin Cities audiences. Her program opens with Mozart and includes works by Bairstow, Karg-Elert and Reimann, as well as movements from Elgar, Widor, and Parker. While she’s here she will offer an organ masterclass and work with French students and faculty as well.
