Europe 2008

The summer of 2008 was rich with great musical and cultural opportunities! The morning after a most memorable and exciting recital (before over 2,000 people) on the Spreckels Organ at Balboa Park, I made my way to England to try on the shoes of an English Cathedral Organist for a week at majestic Durham Cathedral, with the choir of the Church of the Holy Spirit, Lake Forest, Illinois, under the direction of Don Horisberger. A quick Chunnel train-ride brought me to my beloved Paris, but not for long, as my fantastic brother Alex and I would soon embark on a rather comprehensive trip of Northern Germany. After a week of intense touring, I returned to Paris to enjoy all of its manifold offerings - architecture, art, history, food (cheese!), wine, and of course, organs!
