Internationally renowned organist Pavel Kohout will perform as part of the Chapel Artist Series on Sunday, April 14 at 3 p.m. in St. Joseph Memorial Chapel at the College of the Holy Cross. The concert program will include works by Buxtehude, Böhm, J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach and old Czech masters. The performance is free, open to the public and handicap accessible.
The recipient of the prestigious First Prize and J.S. Bach Prize at Musahino, Tokyo’s international organ competition in 2000, Kohout is one of the world’s most respected European concert artists. Graduating from the Prague Conservatory and the Music Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in 1996, he has also studied at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in the Netherlands. In 1998 and 1999 he won first prizes in several international contests in Ljublijana, Slovenia and Vilinus, Lithuania. He also won the “Dancing Angel” prize of the European Music Competition for Youth.
Having extensively toured throughout Europe, Russia, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the U.S., Kohout often collaborates with Czech National Radio for the project “Historical Organs,” which offers various international master classes to the public.
