Internationally acclaimed organ virtuoso Hector Olivera makes his Northrop debut in a program that features works by Meyerbeer, Elmore, Franck, Vierne and more. Beginning years ago as a child prodigy in Buenos Aires, the Juilliard-trained organist now commands the finest organs on the world stage. Acclaimed for his prodigious technical proficiency and the uncanny effect he has on his audience, Maestro Olivera is a passionate, gifted, and unique musician, whose personal interpretations of both classical and popular music have amazed and delighted audiences around the world.

The event will begin with the premier of a 45-minute documentary, The Northrop Organ: Past, Present and Future. The film tells the story of Northrop’s Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ, Opus 892, from its beginning in 1932 to the present day. The documentary is produced by the Twin Cities Chapter of the American Guild of Organists in anticipation of the regional convention in the Twin Cities coming July 2023.

A Celebratory Reception

Immediately following the concert, join us for a celebratory reception at the Campus Club in Coffman Memorial Union hosted by the Twin Cities Chapter of the American Guild of Organists. Connect with friends, colleagues, and lovers of organ music while enjoying a complimentary beverage and an inspired menu of locally sourced food prepared by executive chef, Beth Jones. Register for the reception when ordering your concert tickets, above.
