Senior M.Div. student Mark Gorman will offer a presentation on "What Can the Art of Hymn-Leading Teach Us about Theology?" drawing on a directed reading course supervised by David Arcus, chapel organist and associate university organist, and Duke Divinity School Professor Jo Bailey Wells. The presentation will include demonstrations of improvisation and hymn-leading techniques on the Goodson Chapel organ, as well as proposals on what pastors and theologians can learn from organists' engagement with hymns.
