An extraordinarily gifted performer of exceptional finesse, Spivey Hall organistin- residence Alan Morrison explores the vast wealth of organ repertoire in recitals of music familiar and new, through his lively interpretations of uncommon intelligence and clarity. “His performances were expansive, never rushed, and he revealed an excellent sense of timing and vocality” (The Diapason).
Recognized as one of America’s premier concert organists, Morrison is Head of the Organ Department at The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, College Organist at Ursinus College, and faculty member at Westminster Choir College of Rider University.
“Alan Morrison, a native of Atlanta, performed a magnificent recital”
(The American Organist)
