Organist Rudy de Vos will open Pasadena Presbyterian Church’s 2013–2014 Friends of Music concert series with a recital on the church’s magnificent Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ on Saturday, September 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the church Sanctuary, 585 E. Colorado Blvd. (corner of Madison Ave.) in the Playhouse District of downtown Pasadena.
As are all programs on the eight-concert series, the recital is free (a freewill offering will be taken). Free parking is available and the Sanctuary is handicap-accessible.
De Vos will play music by Marcel Languetuit, Charles Tournemire, Louis Vierne, Guy Bovet, César Franck, Maurice Ravel, Edwin Lemare, Joseph Bonnet and Maurice Duruflé. See the complete program and much more information here.
A native of South Africa (and the son of a Dutch Reformed Pastor), de Vos has been organist and director of music at the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland since 2009. A laureate of the prestigious St. Albans International Organ Competition, he has appeared with the Chamber Orchestra of South Africa, Artium Symphony, Natal Symphony and the Eastman School Symphony.
“Rudy de Vos is one of the most exciting young artists in the U.S.,” says Dr. Timothy Howard, Organist and Director of Music at Pasadena Presbyterian Church. “We’re thrilled to have him opening our Friends of Music concert season.”
