Meet November Organ Recital Artist Damin Spritzer

Organist Damin Spritzer, Assistant Professor of Organ at the University of Oklahoma with the American Organ Institute and the Cathedral Church of Saint Matthew in Dallas as Artist-in-Residence for Cathedral Arts, will perform on Sunday, November 25 as the final artist in the 2018 November Organ Recital Series.

Q: What inspired you to become an organist?

A: I was inspired to become an organist when I was very small, and my father would play E. Power Biggs organ recordings for me. I thought they were majestic and beautiful beyond description! 

Q: What do you look forward to the most whenever you sit at an organ for the first time?

A: I think things that I most cherish and look forward to each time I sit at a new instrument are what it has to teach me, and what sounds and/or characteristics are unique to it that I can hope to use in a beautiful way that emphasizes and enhances those things. 

Q:  What sounds to do look forward to hearing played on our Dobson?

A: I am very eager to hear the Tuba Mirabilis because of my love of English organ music, but I am equally as interested in hearing the Unda Maris (a stop for which I have a particular affinity) and the enclosed clarinet! 

Hear Damin perform Sunday at 4 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
