One of the finest organists I've ever heard and quite personable, interesting and humorous as he connects with his audience. Excellent & varied program as well.

The solo performances were quite loud--what a powerful organ. The other pieces with the soloist and San Francisco Brass were excellent. It was a great treat to see a wonderful organ being put through its paces.
