Polish Organist To Perform as Part of Holy Cross’ Annual Chapel Artists Series

October 30th, 2013 by 

Marcin Szelest will be performing at the College of the Holy Cross’ St. Joseph Memorial Chapel on Sunday, Nov. 3 at 3 p.m. as part of the Chapel Artists Series. The program will include pieces by Adam of Wągrowiec, Hieronymus Praetorius, Heinrich Scheidemann, Georg Böhm, Johann Adam Reincken, Johann Pachelbel , and Dieterich Buxtehude.

In addition to performing around the world in solo concert along with period instrument ensembles, Szelest is the chair of the early music department at the Krakow Academy of Music and is an organist of the historic Church of the Holy Cross in Krakow, Poland. While performing, he appeared under Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony as a continuo artist in Bach’s “St. Matthew Passion.” Szelest also supervised the restoration of the early 18th century organ at the Church of the Holy Cross, one of Poland’s most well known, historic organs.

In 1995, Szelest was the first prize-winner of the Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck Organ Competition in Gdansk, Poland.

The music department’s Holy Cross Chapel Series also includes the following upcoming performances:

  • Sun., February 16; 3 p.m.
    Christian Schmitt
    UPDATE: Due to a family situation, Christian Schmitt will be unable to perform this concert. This date will instead feature organ scholar Abraham Ross ’16.

    Philipp Christ
    St. Joseph Memorial Chapel
