Join renowned organ virtuoso, Richard Elliott, for our first annual John Weaver Memorial Concert, celebrating the late John Weaver (1937-2021), who concertized annually on the Kotzschmar for half a century and whose performances and personality were treasured by all. One of John’s finest students at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, Richard Elliott is now Principal Organist at the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City and has thrilled audiences across the globe with his ingenious programming and fiery technique. Richard is no stranger to Portland audiences, and his program will be sure to pay homage to his teacher and take advantage of the many sounds the Kotzschmar has to offer.
