West End United Methodist Church

Lenten Noon Concert Series 2022 (6th Concert)

Topics:Concert, Lent

This is the sixth and final in our annual series of Lenten Noon Concerts, held on Thursdays through the season of Lent.  Today our own Andrew Risinger, Organist and Associate Director of Music at West End UMC is featured on the Moller organ.  Mr. Risinger is a native Texan who graduated from Baylor University in Organ Performance as a student of the late Joyce Jones.  He then completed master’s degrees in Organ Performance and Choral Conducting at the University of Alabama before coming to Nashville.  He has been at West End since 1995, and he also serves as adjunct faculty at Belmont University and as Organ Curator and organist for the Nashville Symphony Orchestra.  Today’s concert features some of Risinger’s favorite composers, including works by Bach, Böhm, Alain, Duruflé, and Vierne.  As he explains after the first piece, the Böhm and Alain are a study in contrasting types of prayers, very appropriate for our own time. More information about Mr. Risinger and this concert are available in the pdf of the program for viewing or download below.
