The Organ at Davidson
In 2006 Jane Cain, Organist and Director of Music at Davidson College Presbyterian Church, conceived of a program of organ music to be held spotlighting the newly restored Wicks organ at the church. Six concerts were planned for the 2006-2007 academic year, featuring talented organists from the area.
Now in its twelfth season, the Organ at Davidson series has drawn artists from around the United States and around the world. Programs have included organ with other instruments, organ accompanying silent films, and duo organ performances. The March concert has traditionally been a “Bach Birthday Bash” when the birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach is celebrated.
Each concert is followed by a reception, planned and hosted by a faithful cadre of Friends of the Organ. The programs are free of charge to the public and the series is sustained through donor contributions.
