Duke Chapel Organ Recital by Herbert Buffington (Trinity '80)
Duke Chapel will present a recital on the Aeolian organ by Herbert Buffington (Trinity '80) as part of the "Alumni Series." Recognized for his ability as an improvisateur, he won second prize in the American Guild of Organists National Competition in Organ Improvisation in 2010.
A recent media review praised his improvisation as a "fascinating solo organ fantasy...a tour de force." His program will offer works by Mendelssohn, Franck, Reger, and Tournemire, plus an improvisation on submitted themes.
