Princeton University organist Eric Plutz performs for this year’s “PipeSpectacular,” sponsored each fall by the Northern VA, DC and Potomac chapters of the American Guild of Organists. Plutz’s program features works by Marcel Dupré, Nadia Boulanger, Louis Vierne, Olivier Messiaen and Maurice Duruflé. The monastery’s 41-rank Lively-Fulcher pipe organ, dedicated in 2003, is beautifully suited for French music from the early to mid-20th century, and the 5-7 seconds of reverberation enhance the listening experience.
Eric Plutz has begun his second decade as university organist at Princeton University. He has made four solo recordings on the Pro Organo label and has performed for conventions of the Organ Historical Society and American Guild of Organists, including the AGO’s 2010 national convention in Washington. From 1995 through 2004, he was organist and director of music at Church of the Epiphany in Washington. In addition to his performing and teaching responsibilities at Princeton, he is adjunct assistant professor of organ at Westminster Choir College of Rider University and rehearsal accompanist for the Westminster Symphonic Choir.
The entire audience is invited to a reception following this program.
