The first Lenten Recital of the 2017 series features organist Bryan Anderson. St. Paul's current Organ Scholar, he will present selections from the repertoire of Bach, Wido, and Ireland. The recital is free of charge.

Anderson is an organist native to Georgia.  Currently working toward a master's degree at Rice University under Ken Cowan, Bryan's undergraduate work was at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where he earned degrees in organ (studying with Alan Morrison) and harpsichord (with Leon Schelhase). 

A rising concert artist, Anderson has performed at venues including the Kennedy Center, Verizon Hall in Philadelphia, Woolsey Hall at Yale, Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, Princeton University Chapel, and the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York. He also has been featured in performance at conventions of the American Guild of Organists and the Organ Historical Society. 

His recent positions have been as organist at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, as well serving as an assistant organist of the Wanamaker Grand Court Organ in Macy's department store for several years. 

For the past year (2015-2016), he held the post of Organ Scholar at Wells Cathedral in Somerset, England. In addition to work at the organ, Anderson has enjoyed extensive collaboration as a chamber musician, performing many times as a continuo artist and ensemble pianist.
