On Friday, October 18, 2019 at 8:00 p.m., Saint Mary’s new assistant organist Samuel Rowe will present an organ recital on the Robert William Wallace pipe organ. Originally hailing from Maine, Samuel Rowe is a candidate in the Master of Music program in choral conducting at the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C. under the tutelage of Dr. Timothy McDonnell. An organ student of Antonius Bittmann and Renée Anne Louprette, Mr. Rowe received a Bachelor of Music degree in organ performance from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, New Jersey. Mr. Rowe will present an exciting program of works by Bach, Franck, Guilain, Hindemith and Messiaen. Following the recital, there will be an opportunity to meet Mr. Rowe at a reception in the Parish Life Center. Mark your calendars for what promises to be an exciting beginning to the 2019/2020 Concerts at Saint Mary season.
