Alan Morrison, organ
A “virtuoso of flawless technique and refined taste” (The Plain Dealer, Cleveland), organist Alan Morrison is “visionary in his choice of colors and ability to shape music into lucid forms…[with] plenty of bravura when called for” (The Birmingham News). In Season 25, Spivey Hall welcomes Morrison, an Atlanta native who heads the Curtis Institute of Music’s organ department, as Organist-in- Residence. “If more music lovers heard the king of instruments played the way he did, more might believe it really deserves the nickname” (The Charlotte Observer).
“Great organists… impress us with virtues like flair, sensitivity and their grasp of musical structure. Alan Morrison fits that description” (www.broadstreetreview.com)
