About the Event

Organ recital
including "Symphonic Bach"

Grammy-winning organist Paul Jacobs returns to Northrop in a solo recital showcasing his expressive playing talents as well as the symphonic possibilities of works by Bach and the historic Aeolian-Skinner Opus 892 pipe organ. Jacobs thrilled Northrop audiences with the debut of a co-commissioned piece in 2018 when he appeared with the Minnesota Orchestra for an inaugural performance celebrating the restoration of the organ.

From the Director of Programming

Those of you who attended the rededication of Northrop’s Aeolian Skinner Organ in 2018 will remember the virtuosity and personality of Paul Jacobs who appeared with the Minnesota Orchestra on that concert. By popular demand we’re bringing him back for a solo recital on Apr 13. His program will delve deeply into Symphonic Bach. As someone who has played our organ before, Jacobs is also interested in the particular sonority of the Northrop Organ and may add some additional music to the program to highlight our glorious instrument.
