Atlanta Summer Organ Festival

June 26 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Bálint Karosi will perform at the Cathedral of St. Philip as part of the Atlanta Summer Organ Festival. Bálint has been Cantor and Director of Music at Saint Peter’s Church in New York City since 2015. After winning the 2008 Bach Prize in Leipzig, Bálint has been in demand as a recitalist and clinician worldwide and widely known and respected for his interpretation of Bach’s music and his Baroque-inspired improvisations. His recording portfolio of albums on the Hungaroton label includes his original orchestral works and thirteen albums of the complete works for organ by J. S. Bach. Bálint was appointed to the faculty of the Organ Department at the University of Michigan, where he teaches organ literature, church music, and improvisation. He is celebrated for his great skill in organ improvisation, and is a prolific, award-winning composer across instrumental and vocal mediums. Bálint studied at the Liszt Academy in his native Budapest, Hungary, the Conservatoire Supérieur in Geneva, Switzerland, and at the Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio. He earned his DMA in composition at the Yale School of Music in 2017.

Presented by Delbert Lowell Jacks in memory of Thomas Ruben Jones, and Friends of Cathedral Music.
