About the Event
Dr. Ford Lallerstedt, organist, composer, conductor, and pianist began his musical studies by making up pieces on the piano at age four. Improvising has always been his musical passion, and in addition to the 2002 release of his 24 Improvised Preludes and Fugues, has improvised and recorded over 200 pieces for piano as well as organ. As a concert organist, he has performed throughout the US, including major solo recitals at Lincoln Center, New York as well as Europe, including France, Holland, Switzerland, Italy, England, and the "Bach" cities of Germany — Berlin, Leipzig, and Dresden. He has served on the faculties of the Curtis Institute, Juilliard School, State University of New York at Purchase, Mannes College of Music (organ), the Tanglewood Music Center conducting studies program with Robert Spano and Seiji Ozawa, and the Britt Festival’s Young Artist Fellowship program with conductor Teddy Abrams. Lallerstedt sits on the Coudert Institute board of directors where he curates a select concert series featuring emerging young artists from the Curtis Institute. He is married to Metropolitan Opera soloist Brenda Boozer.
