Grammy Award-winning Paul Jacobs, chair of the Julliard School's organ department, is an internationally celebrated organist. Heralded as "one of the major musicians of our time" by Alex Ross of The New Yorker, Dr. Jacobs has performed to great critical acclaim on five continents and in each of the fifty United States. Known for playing demanding programs exclusively from memory, he has memorized the complete works of Olivier Messiaen, as well as the complete works of Johann Sebastian Bach, Johannes Brahms, and César Franck. An advocate for new music and an eloquent champion of the organ, Dr. Jacobs has performed numerous premieres of solo organ and organ-orchestra commissions.
Dr. Jacobs will display his brilliance on the three-manual 81-rank Austin organ at Westminster Presbyterian Church.
