French Organist Vincent Dubois in Recital

June 28 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Vincent Dubois, one of the three titular organists at historic Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, will be heard in recital June 28 at 8 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church of Evanston, presented by the Great Lakes Regional Convention of the American Guild of Organists, meeting in Evanston.

Dubois will open his all-European program with a transcription of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Adagio and Fugue in C minor, K. 546.

He’ll play two of Robert Schumann’s “Six Studies in the Form of Canons,” Op. 56; César Franck’s Choral No. 2 in B minor from “Trois Chorals”; three movements from Louis Vierne’s Symphony No. 2, opus 20; Camille Saint-Saëns “Danse Macabre,” opus 40; and the “Final” from Marcel Dupré’s Evocation, opus 37. He’ll conclude with an improvisation on a theme submitted at the concert.

In addition to his cathedral post, Dubois is professor of organ interpretation and improvisation at the Hochschule für Musik (University of Music), Saarbrücken, Germany. He has appeared as guest soloist with many orchestras and ensembles, including the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Dallas Symphony, the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Orchestre Philharmonique of Radio France, and the Orchestre National de France, among others.

Admission is $25 per person, payable at the door.
