Krusemark to pull out all the stops at organ recital Feb. 21

Ruth Krusemark, Kremmeter professor of music at Benedictine College, will present an organ recital at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21, in St. Scholastica Chapel.

Her recital will be the inaugural performance on the newly refurbished chapel organ. In January, the organ received an update, including a new set of trumpet stops and a larger memory with an improved combination action, through a gift from a generous donor.

The program will feature works by contemporary women organists and composers including Rachel Laurin, Dorothy Papadakos, Barbara Harbach, Pamela Decker, Carol Williams, Chelsea Chen and Emma Lou Diemer.

Krusemark received her bachelor of music degree in piano performance from Benedictine College, and a master of music in piano performance and doctor of music arts degree in organ from the University of Kansas. 

When arriving for the concert, please use St. Cecilia’s entrance.

The recital is being videotaped for replay on the Musforum.org (Online Magazine for Women Organists) Global Recital June 5-12.
