Pittsburgh native Nicholas Capozzoli has established himself as a solo organist, collaborative artist, and scholar with great distinction and versatility. His artistic accomplishments have been recognized throughout North America, garnering prizes in the Canadian International Organ Competition, Taylor Organ Competition, AGO/Quimby Competition for Young Organists, and Carol Teti Memorial Organ Competition.

An advocate for research into music by female and marginalized composers, his doctoral thesis on the life and music of Claire Delbos (1906-1959) is the first study of its kind. A chapter of this paper was recently awarded Second Prize in the Dean’s Essay Competition at McGill University.

Nicholas is a member of The Diapason’s “20 under 30 Class of 2015,” which recognizes individuals under the age of 30 who have made significant contributions to the fields of organ performance, harpsichord, and church music. He is also featured in the critically acclaimed CBC documentary “Pipe Dreams.”

Dr. Capozzoli will display his brilliance on the four-manual 97-rank von Beckerath at Saint Paul Cathedral.

Presented in cooperation with the Saint Paul Cathderal Concert Series.
