Adam Brakel, organ

Like Liszt, Gould, Bernstein, and Paganini before him, Floridian organist Adam Brakel proves that prodigies do not fade. By the time National Public Radio proclaimed him “an absolute organ prodigy . . . the Franz Liszt of the organ,” Brakel had already embarked on a successful coast to coast concert career. His diverse program will include works by Bach, Widor, Buxtehude, Albright, and more. The event is free and no tickets are required.
