“Musicians of this caliber are gold dust.”—The Herald
James Feddeck returns to the McMyler Memorial Organ in Gartner Auditorium for the first time since 2013. He has performed recitals throughout Europe and North America, won competitions sponsored by the American Guild of Organists, and was featured on Pipedreams, a nationally syndicated radio program. His musical training and background is unusually diverse; he was admitted to the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in four areas—piano, oboe, organ, and conducting, a rare distinction. Perhaps best known as a fast-rising young conductor, Feddeck served as Assistant Conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra from 2009 to 2013. He is a guest conductor with orchestras around the world, including the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Hallé Orchestra, Residentie Orchestra at the Concertgebouw, and, in North America, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Program to include works by J. S. Bach, Mendelssohn, Barber, Alain, and Widor.
