College of the Holy Cross Organ Scholar Jennifer McPherson ’13 will perform as part of the College’s Chapel Artist Series on Sunday, May 5 at 3 p.m. in St. Joseph Memorial Chapel. The concert will consist of works by Scheidemann, Sweelinck, Schildt and J.S. Bach. The performance is free, open to the public and handicap accessible.

McPherson is currently active as a freelance musician in the Boston area and regularly performs as organist-harpsichordist with groups including the Heritage Choral, the Newton Choral Society, the Wellesley Hills Congregational Church Orchestra, and Ensemble Abendmusik. She has also performed internationally in Ireland and the Czech Republic with the University Chorale of Boston College under the direction of John Finney. In 2011 she attended the McGill University Summer Organ Academy, as well as the Oberlin Baroque Institute in 2012.

At Holy Cross, McPherson has been involved in the Schola Cantorum and has also accompanied the College Choir on various occasions. A Music major from Eliot, Maine, she has won the Boston Chapter of the American Guild of Organists Regional Organ Competition (2013) and third prize in the 2012 Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck International Organ Competition, which took place in Amsterdam. There, she was the only American to advance to the finals and was the competition’s youngest competitor. She will continue her studies this fall at Oberlin Conservatory, and will pursue a master of music degree in historical performance.
