Yuri McCoy, Concert Organist
February 25 at 2:00 pm – 3:30 pmFree
Yuri McCoy originally came to Honolulu to earn a graduate degree in piano performance and served as organ scholar of St. Andrewʻs Cathedral under Canon Director of Music John Renke. This concert marks his return to Hawaiʻi now as a rising star in organ performance. Currently a doctoral student at the Shepherd School of Music, Rice University in Houston, he is studying with organist Ken Cowan.
Moving from piano to organ he has a vast repertoire of music for both instruments and specializes in music of the 20th and 21st centuries, especially the rarely heard masterworks. His concert here will include some standard works of Bach, Buxtehude, Liszt, and Vierne as well as lesser-known composers such as Karg-Elert, Elmore, Bonnet, Whitlock, and Dan Miller.
The concert is free, donations welcomed. Sponsored by the Hawai‘i Chapter, American Guild of Organists.
