Organ performance Sept. 8 at Dordt

August 30, 2006


Dordt College’s prize-winning organist, Dr. Robert Horton, will present a recital at the B.J. Haan Auditorium on Friday, Sept. 8, at 7:30 p.m.

Horton’s program for the evening includes Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Concerto in A Major,”; Claude Debussy’s endearing “Petite Suite”, and Sigfrid Karg-Elert’s titanic “Symphony in F-Sharp Minor.”

Dr. Robert Horton recently won two prizes for an organ performance in the American Guild of Organists (AGO) national competition. He is assistant professor of music at Dordt College, where he teaches organ, church music, music history and aural skills.

Dr. Horton earned his D.M.A. (Doctor of Musical Arts) in organ study at the University of Kansas, was a Fulbright Scholar at Northwestern University, and earned his Master of Music in organ/organ study at Cornell University.

Admission to this performance is free, with a freewill offering received to benefit music scholarships at Dordt College. More than 300 U.S. and international students participate in the music program at Dordt, with opportunities to perform in four choral groups, two orchestras, and three bands. Music scholarships are available to qualified students.
