Top organist will play Stambaugh
Grammy Award-winning organist Paul Jacobs will come to Stambaugh Auditorium, 1000 Fifth Ave., on May 6 for a 4 p.m. concert.
Tickets range from $7 to $12 and are available by phone at 330-259-0555, online at stambaughauditorium.com, and at the box office, which is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Jacobs is said to transfix audiences with his imaginative interpretations and stage presence. As an advocate of organ repertoire, he performs and encourages the composition of new works that feature the organ.
The Washington, Pa., native is the chairman of the organ department at the Juilliard School.
He joined Juilliard’s faculty in 2003, becoming one of the youngest faculty appointees in its history.
At age 23, he made history when he played Bach’s complete organ works in an 18-hour marathon performance.
