American Guild of Organists

Pasadena & Los Angeles Chapters
Sunday, May 18, 1997 James Walker

This concert was huge in scale. The Celestial Country by Charles Ives is a wonderfully wild piece for chorus, soloists and orchestra, that I very much enjoyed conducting for my peers in the A.G.O.

Then, two organ concertos. Gary Bachlund's premiere concerto has a big organ part which I played, plus a harpsichord part that Tim Howard played, as conductor. I had premiered Craig Phillips' Concertino a few years prior, at St. Matthew's, Pacific Palisades, as part of an Association of Anglican Musicians conference.

A wonderful, richly-varied evening of music at All Saints.
