Concert organist Bruce Neswick will perform at Illinois College on Friday, November 18, at 7:30 p.m. in Rammelkamp Chapel as part of the Fine Arts Series.
One of America’s major talents in the field of organ performance, Neswick’s playing is widely recognized for its incisiveness, vitality and expressiveness. He was the director of music at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in New York City until he recently accepted a post as associate professor of organ at Indiana University.
Neswick has performed extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe, and has been a featured recitalist at national and regional conventions of the American Guild of Organists. His refined skill at improvisation has won him three first prizes - from the 1989 San Anselmo Organ Festival, the 1990 Boston American Guild of Organists' national convention, and the 1992 Rochette Concours at the Conservatoire de Musique in Geneva, Switzerland.
The Neswick concert is the third of six performances in the Fine Arts Series. Tickets for the concert cost $15. The concert series offers free admission to students of all ages, regardless of where they attend school.
