Fine Arts Series :: Stephen Tharp '92, Organist
We are thrilled to bring back one of Illinois College’s very own, virtuoso organist Stephen Tharp ’92. A magna cum laude graduate of Illinois College, Mr. Tharp has become one of the world’s great organists, a consummate musician, renowned for performances that are both insightful and exciting. He has concertized throughout the United States and Europe (he recently completed his 58th concert tour of Europe), was organist at both St. Patrick’s Cathedral and St. Bartholomew’s Church in New York City, and was official organist for the New York visit of Pope Benedict XVI in 2008. The Dallas Morning News wrote that he is “one of the most brilliant concert organists around these days,” and Diapason magazine called him “the best organist in America.”
