Juilliard organist James Kennerley performs Oct. 18

James Kennerley performs works spanning the entire length of the organ’s repertoire, starting with music from the mid-14th century Robertsbridge Codex and proceeding to compositions from the present day Oct. 18, at 5 p.m., at St. Barnabas Episcopal Church, Greenwich. Pieces by Bach, Sweelinck, and others round out the program. If you haven’t heard this ground-breaking Richards, Fowkes & Co. instrument, you should!

Hailed as “a great organist” displaying “phenomenal technique and sheer musicality” (Bloomberg News), Kennerley is a multi-faceted musician, working as a conductor, keyboardist, singer, and educator.

Kennerley was a prizewinner at the 2008 Albert Schweitzer International Organ Competition, and a finalist at the inaugural (2013) Longwood Gardens International Organ Competition. In addition to solo concerts in the US and Europe.

A native of the United Kingdom, Kennerley is organist and choirmaster at Saint Ignatius of Antioch Episcopal church, New York City, where he directs the professional choir and coordinates the church’s extensive concert series.

A recognized specialist in the realm of early music, he has collaborated with the likes of William Christie, Richard Egarr, Nicholas McGegan, Christopher Hogwood, Monica Huggett, Julian Wachner, and many others. He has given solo harpsichord and organ concerts throughout the United States and Europe to great acclaim. He is currently enrolled in the Historical Performance program at the Juilliard School, where he studies with Kenneth Weiss, Peter Sykes, and Richard Egarr. Plans for 2015-16 include the performance of the complete harpsichord and organ works of J S Bach.
