As part of the Tiffany Series concerts at Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church (1320 Park Avenue, in the Bolton Hill section of Baltimore), renowned organist Mickey Thomas Terry will play a program of European organ classics as well as works by African-American composers. The concert will be on Sunday, October 27th at 3 pm. A reception will follow.
Mr. Terry has been widely praised for his “extraordinary skill” (Washington Post), his impeccable musicianship, and the “passion and poetry” of his playing (“Pipedreams,” Minnesota Public Radio). The American Organist described a recital he gave at an American Guild of Organists’ convention as “a rousing program … inspired.”
Mr. Terry will play this entire concert from memory. In addition, this concert will be video-streamed onto a Big Screen in the front of the church, so you will be able to watch him play.
Well known as an expert in African American organ music, Mr. Terry has published eight volumes of his critically acclaimed African-American Organ Music Anthology, and there are rumors that Volume 9 will soon appear. He has been a featured artist at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, at AGO conventions, and at the Piccolo-Spoleto Music Festival in Charleston, South Carolina, in addition to his numerous recital performances throughout the US. Director of Music at St. Joseph’s on Capitol Hill in Washington, Mr. Terry is a faculty member in Howard University’s Department of Music. He has also taught at Georgetown University.
