Murray Presents at Gathering for Young Organists

organEnglish Professor Douglas Murray served as a guest clinician at OrgelFest, a East Tennessee gathering for young organists, sponsored by the Department of Music at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.  Murray discussed Renaissance and Baroque traditions and techniques of improvisation and coached three students in a masterclass on improvisation.  He closed the three hour session with three improvisations, each in a different style, on a given hymn tune.

Murray was the runner-up in the National Competition in Organ Improvisation, held last June in Boston, Massachusetts.
